Police T3s at Pearson

Airport Police - Now With Added Nerd Factor


Watch out creeps, scumbags, and all assortment of miscellaneous villainy, Peel Police are sporting some new wheels at Toronto's Pearson International Airport, from the future. Starting today, police at Pearson International are rolling out new Segway-like three-wheeled electric vehicles to help them get around Terminal One quicker.

This makes Pearson the first in Canada, and only other airport in North America other than LAX to get equipped with the buggies . Beyond looking like distant cousins of RoboCop, they'll help police track down missing people in the airport easier, and presumably make life safer for us all.

Cops have already commented that the T3s are making rather quick work of traversing the enormous terminal, and reducing the number of officers that need to be deployed in any given situation.

As an added bonus, the vehicles run completely off an electric power source, and can make a top speed of 10 kilometers per hour. Police hope to order more next year if they continue to prove useful.
