Paul Blart need not apply
Leave it to Target to bring a sense of style to parking lot security. The company purchased 100 electric personal mobility vehicles from T3 Motion, and then applied Target branding elements, such as the bullseye logo, and a red on white color scheme. The distinctive, three-wheeled vehicles are sure to turn heads in store parking lots and that’s a good thing from Target’s perspective, since they will be used by security personnel. The vehicles were actually designed with input from law enforcement and security industry professionals. In addition to serving as a visual deterrent, the highly maneuverable T3 could even be used for apprehension purposes, as it has a top speed of 25 miles per hour, or more than double the Segway Human Transporter that served as a comedic device for actor Kevin James in the movie Paul Blart, Mall Cop. Unlike James character in the movie, Target asset protection personnel could actually use a T3 to catch a bad guy, as its 25-miles-per-hour top speed is more than adequate considering Jamaican Sprinter and world’s fastest man, Usain Bolt, doesn’t even crack 24 miles per hour when he runs the 100 meters in record setting time.
