Going green is a problem for the NYPD blue.
The New York Police Department has nearly 60 gas-saving Nissan Altima hybrid cars. But the edges of the seats curl. So, when officers get out of the hybrid squad cars, their gun handles give them a painful poke in the hip.
Police officials say the cars will be given flatter seats and a lower center console.
The modification of the green squad cars will cost about $1,100 each.
