Retired police squad car used to prevent drunk driving

Posted: Updated:

Police are trying a new approach to stop a growing problem.

A retired police car in Wisconsin is designed to make people think about all kinds of drunk driving.

The half-squad car, half-taxi has televisions inside that play videos of people affected by drugs or alcohol.

"It is a great conversation starter, and it's an easy education tool as well with all the stickers and decals on the car," a Wisconsin officer said.

Police plan to park the car at festivals and special events to give people another perspective on drunk driving.
