Gadget expected to cut Iowa police gas use

IdleRight monitors battery status and starts vehicle when level dips too low

Waterloo Cedar Falls Courier

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa - A modern police squad car has a whole laundry list of on-board electronic devices.

Camera, computer, printer, radar and radio, sirens and lights, flashlight chargers and even weapons locks all run on electricity.
