Westchester County police have a new weapon in the fight against chatty drivers this holiday season.

Westchester county police have unveiled a new "secret" weapon in the fight against chatty drivers this holiday season.

An new all-white  "ghost car" is the same as Ford Crown Victorias currently on the road but this cruiser has gray and white decals to help officers blend in with other civilian traffic and creep up on drivers talking on cell phones, texting or driving without a seatbelt.

The county is starting with just one of the cars, but if it proves successful motorists could see more of the phantom cop cars  on Westchester highways.

Boo!
