leave a comment »

The Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority Police Department purchased a T3 Personal Mobility Vehicle for use at the Bob Hope Airport using $12,000 seized from people caught trafficking drugs, officials said Monday.

At a time when holiday crowds can impede speedy movement of police officers, the vehicle enables officers to quickly move through the terminal in short order, said Lucy Burghdorf, the airport’s community relations manager.

The T3 runs on clean energy, uses only about 10 cents per day of electricity and can travel up to 25 miles per hour.

It is equipped with a fully compliant Law Enforcement LED emergency lighting package and has a capacity of up to 450 pounds,  including the rider and equipment, Burghdorf said.
