    That is one of the many semi marked Chevy Tahoe's Alabama put on the road around 2005. Colors range from the blue you see to black, gray, and maroon. All are PPV's and all have hidden lights. They also added some Ford Expeditions, Explorers, and Excursions in their SUV "Study". The added room was welcome to the troopers who were assigned these vehicles, but the sluggish preformance and fuel consumption left a lot to be desired. I suspect they will be phased out with the exception of the "weight crews" who really need the space for the mobile scales.

    Obviously the guy changing the tire is the trooper that drives the vehicle and the one FSP trooper is helping him.

    The other two are offering their moral support. :-)

    When I saw the picture, I noticed that the Alabama State Police drives a blue truck. Is a blue truck a Chevy Suburuban or Chevy Tahoe? Also, is it 4-wheel drive or a real-wheel drive?

    Actually, my message was a response to a comment no longer on this page. The original comment was about overtime being paid while the troopers just stood around and making the sgt. change the tire.

    The comment that is no longer on the page was from someone who is not welcome here anymore but just doesn't seem to understand what that means. His comment was deleted, but yours wasn't. As a result, it now looks like you're asking a dumb question. If you want your comment deleted, let us know and we'll remove this string.

    Apparently you are too stupid to realize this is during the Hurricane Katrina relief and that officers from around the country responded. And they combined resources such as having vehicle repair facilities within the command post areas. Flat tires were the biggest problem with all the debris.

    Why would Florida Troopers be changing another agency's flat tire?
