How to describe a vehicle
To provide a useful description of a suspicious vehicle, it is most important to trust your instincts and make note of as many details as possible. The Citizens’ Crime Watch of Miami-Dade County, Florida, recommends reporting the following information for a full description:
- Color, make and year.
- Body type – sedan, two-door, convertible, sport utility vehicle.
- License number – specify state.
- Other unique elements – exterior attachments, damage, bumper stickers, window decals, etc.
For example: A black, late model Plymouth, four-door sedan; Florida license number ABC 333; large dent on rear passenger door; and Florida Marlins decal on rear window.
