|Decepticons are jets, any real transformers fan knows this.|
Braintree Deputy Police Chief Wayne Foster to local Patriot Ledger:
Foster said the car "was made to look like a police cruiser," with the body painted black and white, a police-style shield on the doors, and decals for 911, K-9 and speed enforcement. He said the only thing the car didn't have was police-style blue lights on the top...
Foster also noted that the Maserati's police-style shield decorations said "Decepticons punish and enslave," rather than the usual police motto "protect and serve."
Painting your car to resemble a police vehicle is illegal. However, bafflingly, destroying the value of your Maserati by theme painting it to a 1980's animated show and Hasbro toy product is currently not a law on the books, somehow.
According to Foster, the driver told the cop who pulled him over that he was doing police a public service "because other drivers noticed him and slowed down, thinking it was a police vehicle."
It is not clear how much this stupid paint job will cost it's owner, but one thing is sure. It won't compare to the amount of royalties Michael Bay just made off of this whole stunt.
