Crime Desk: Traffic (1/3)

Contrary to what some might think, detectives working the traffic desk don't spend much time sorting out parking tickets and moving violations.
The Traffic crime desk detective unit investigates hit-and-run cases, vehicular manslaughter and murder cases, and collision reports involving serious injuries or fatalities where a crime may be involved.
As Cole Phelps first gets promoted to detective, he is assigned to Traffic - very quickly discovering a dark world where automobiles are used as instruments of murder, deception and violent crime. Reporting to the scene of a mysterious abandoned bloody vehicle, or - for example in "The Fallen Idol" case, to an apparent accident site where witness accounts just don't add up - odd clues and flimsy personal accounts may lead to a far more sinister truth.


A keen eye for evidence at the scene of the crime. Unwavering perception when interrogating suspects. The will to pursue, fight and kill when the need arises in the name of the law. These are the disciplines that will aid Cole Phelps in solving such cases and bringing this killer to justice.

Case files

Interviewing an injured crash victim at the hospital - a delicate process requiring a detective's bedside manner.

In "The Driver's Seat", Phelps and Coroner Carruthers check out a mysterious abandoned car.
Contrary to popular belief, it isn't all dealing with parking violations and fender benders for detectives working the Traffic desk in the LAPD.

A curious letter found on the body of a victim at a crime scene. Might this not have been an accident after all?

  10. I hope they dont make all car crashes into some big gangster conspiracy. It's gonna ruin the awesome sense of reality in this game.

    Sometimes people just get hit by cars.
