The Drought Impacts Police Cars

The sheriff department provides police services for the town next to mine. I was driving home yesterday and a sheriff’s car past me. It was dust covered, dirty. At first I thought the officer might have been driving down dirt roads of a farmer’s field to get the car that dirty. The sheriff’s budgets is so tight they are still driving cars not SUVs.

A second patrol car past me by and it was just as dirty. Then I realized that they were saving water due to the drought.
