Will you start seeing Flying Sheriff's Cars in 2006?

The entire concept of law enforcement/fire rescue vehicles is about to change - in a very exciting way. Science fiction creators and cartoonists have imagined a world of flying automobiles for years; Often depicted on shows like Star Trek or The Jetsons, this has seemed either technologically or fiscally unsound. Fortunately, science and technology have advanced and is bringing a new era to emergency vehicle transportation. Beginning in 2006, the Moller International Corporation is introducing the Moller M400 Skycar. This vehicle seats four people, is capable of a VTOL (Vertical Take-Off and Landing), and cruises at 350-miles per hour and an altitude of up to 29,000 feet! The most exciting part about this initiative is the surprising cost of the craft. Moller International announces that although the first few crafts will cost $500,000, as soon as they reach full production, the cost will be reduced to around $100,000! This is roughly the cost of five squad cars, not including the many thousands of dollars that must go inside each squad car. This California-based company is truly on the verge of starting another era of emergency response. Imagine being able to have a Sheriff's Deputy on the scene of a 9-1-1 call in no more than two minutes regardless of where they lived - or imagine having a paramedic at your door within two minutes of a heart attack!
