Dense much? April 25, 2012 at 06:09 PM
Shorewood has 2 dealerships at I-55 and Rt52 and they couldn't buy them both locally?
Freddie Kissell April 25, 2012 at 06:39 PM
Yeah, an F150??

some times you still need groceries.

F 150 is a great choice and will have many uses in addition to traffic enforcement. The state uses unmarked pickup's and vans for trafice law enforcement why not SWD. I applaud the forward thinking of this choice.

Probably would of paid higher taxes if they bought them both locally. That or some other kind of back room bullsh*t.

Infamous Steve April 26, 2012 at 01:54 PM

Thanks Joe! Maybe you should explain why municipalities buy things like vehicles out of their home area. Have a great day!
