Sweet ride: Civilians test drive 2007 Dodge Charger police package
"I've never seen so many police officers smile or wave at me. But other drivers weren't happy to be near me."

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Like many civilians, we had always done our best to avoid being in, around or in front of police cars. But the people at Dodge made us an offer we found amusing and couldn't refuse: How would you like to drive our 2007 Dodge Charger Police Package sedan for a week?
My associate Ria Manglapus and I jumped at the idea. We thought it would make a great column. My wife, Mary Anne, the conservative among us, was not so sure. "Sounds like trouble," she said. "The police might not like it." Then her face brightened. "Does it come with police lights and a siren? Can we use them?"
