Donalsonville-  Georgia State Patrol cars are getting a makeover to make them more visible along the Peach State's highways.  Orange lettering will replace the old gray letters on the sides and back of GSP cruisers. 

The change may not be new for some, until 1987 the lettering on all GSP vehicles was orange.  The State Patrol has received positive feedback about the change. 

"Well, I think, basically they like it, it's something that makes us more visible out in the community," said Trooper Kyle Duke, GSP Donalsonville. 

Both Donalsonville and Thomasville have one of the newly marked cruisers.  The change will be made as cars are replaced.  The grayish color on the cars will also return to the metallic gray used before 1987.
