A lot of words in English have a stigma. Now those stigmas may stem from a real issue related to the words themselves, but other times those stigmas are just mere rumors about these words. They are simply myths that got stuck in the back of peoples’ minds without being checked, critiqued, or even simply questioned rationally.
For example, from road vehicles, there are the words unmarked van. No news outlet has ever used the words unmarked van for any positive mention whatsoever.
Here’s a fun list of examples including the words unmarked van:

The police cleared the way for an unmarked van to rescue the injured people from the crash since police vehicles were unfortunately low on gas.

Now as you can see the types of vehicles do not define what is happening in those vehicles or as the saying goes, don’t judge a book by its cover.
Now, let’s dive into the rest of the vehicle names and use them in meaningful sentences:
