The Carbon Motors team, my regular clients, were in DC this week showcasing their police car prototype of the future on Capitol Hill.
The event information from their site:
“With the kind and gracious support of U.S. Senator Saxby Chambliss (R-GA) and U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson (R-GA), the Carbon E7 will be returning to the U.S. Capitol this week. The world’s first purpose-built law enforcement patrol vehicle will be on the grounds of the U.S. Senate in Washington D.C. this Wed 18 March 2009 at the corner of Delaware and C Street NE between 1pm – 4pm!
As we like to say, we are looking forward to showing our legislators what 10,000 new American jobs looks like dressed up in red, white, and blue…….and 300 fuel-efficient horsepower!
Thursday (19 March 2009) we will be at the U.S. House of Representatives from 9:30am – 3:30pm (corner of New Jersey Avenue and C Street)!”
Video footage was captured with the Canon 5D Mark 2 and the Canon G9. We were given a full police escort to the US Capitol. I got to snap photos and video from the back seat of a U.S. Capitol Police cruiser.
