Next time you’re in the Stanislaus County town of Ceres you may notice that the motorcycle cops there are patrolling the streets in silence.

The San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District paid the $60,000 price tag for three electric police motorcycles to replace three other gas-powered bikes. The goal was to reduce pollution.

Ceres Police Sergeant Chris Perry says the “zero” motorcycles can travel 120 miles on a single charge, which costs less than a dollar, and they can go everywhere a gas-powered cycle can.
