Contrary to what some might think, detectives working the traffic
desk don’t spend much time having to sort out parking tickets and moving
violations. The Traffic crime desk
detective unit investigates hit-and-run cases, vehicular manslaughter
and murder cases, and any collision report involving serious injuries or
fatalities where a crime may be involved.
As Cole Phelps first gets promoted to detective in L.A. Noire,
he is assigned to Traffic – very quickly discovering a dark world where
sedans are used as instruments of murder, deception and violent crime.
Today, Rockstar Games have unlocked the Traffic Crime Desk feature page at the official L.A. Noire website
- presenting an overview of that particular unit and its cases
including "The Fallen Idol" - where survivor accounts at an accident
crash site just don't add up. Odd clues and flimsy personal accounts may
lead to something far more sinister than things seem.
Here's four brand new screens, taken from the Traffic cases in L.A.
Noire. You can see these and several more new shots in high resolution
right now at the updated Crime Desk Feature page on the L.A. Noire official site.
