Halt for this New York tunnel officer in his “catwalk car”
We’ll say it, there’s something cute about this cop riding in a little car through the Holland Tunnel. Launched in 1955, the “catwalk cars” were two feet wide with a swivel seat that allowed for the tunnel police to keep an eye on drivers as they traveled from New Jersey to New York. The cars moved at a lightning fast 6 – 12 miles per hour, and according to the New York Times:
The catwalk car was the fastest, surest way through the tunnel, gliding blithely past the most epic traffic jams — equipped with no horn, because none was needed.
