    The only place I know where green lights are used on police vehicles are in Puerto Rico.

    Cool looking lightbar!

    ..and sadly, all the rear lights seem to ever do is "attract" the DUI knuckleheads to nearly T/C'ing you or actually hitting the rear of your patrol car( or side swiping the vehicle you've just pulled over).........

    I rode as a passenger in a new LED car the other night. Those takedown lights are BRIGHT. Almost couldn't see approaching traffic on a stop.

    The point of having the forward facing red light on local vehicles is the state requires that (and the siren) to be on for purposes of liability protection. The feds have sovereign immunity, so who cares if they have a forward facing red light.

    Holy cow, do they really think the average driver is going to break out a code book that tells them what each color and signal sequence means?

    If the lights are flashing, pull the f*** over. Nice and simple.

    Thats almost as bad as the terrorrist threat level


    No one knows what to do at each level. Except Ron Whites mom, you'll have to google that one.

    Are federal vehicles (i.e. FBI, ATF, etc.) required to have a steady red light in the front and a rearward facing amber light?
    If operating under emergency conditions, YES! They are required to display a steady burning red light to the front. Federal LE vehicles are AEV's in CA.

    With respect to a rear facing amber light, NO! That is an optional light to warn approaching motorists of a traffic hazard and has no other purpose. It does not identify LE or emergency vehicles.

    I'm sure Sarge can answer this... I know they aren't considered California Peace Officers

    830.8. (a) Federal criminal investigators and law enforcement
    officers are not California peace officers, but may exercise the
    powers of arrest of a peace officer in any of the following
    circumstances:

    that is a negative as far as I know they are exempt I believe..
    just like an FBI vehicle can roll with blue and red lights in new york city when the law of NY state dictates emergency vehicles can only have red and white lights

    ateamer i have seen the green lights on fire veh however it was either on the back of the vehicle flashing or a boom light but they were the command vehicles ie tahoes suburans etc never seen them on the engines. know this cause worked for a fd.

    i was ref towards security veh or even if there were any state or county veh having green/purple lights? and if the lights had any significances like blues for leo's and red for emergency's vehicles.
