Reduce the number of expensive armored vehicles at embassies

I think we have way too many armored vehicles in our embassies. Granted some locations require them, but most do not. These heavy armored cars create hazards themselves and are costly to run.


If employees are already driving around in unarmored personal vehicles, then the only reason to use an armored vehicle at an embassy is for VIP visits and heads of mission. Any other use could be a waste.
