New Jersey State Police have unveiled ``ghost cars'' as their newest tool to catch unruly motorists. The black Chevrolet Caprices appear unmarked from far away. But a closer examination shows a faint gray State Police emblem on its sides.

He says the cars give drivers piece-of-mind that they're talking to actual troopers and not someone masquerading as an officer.
