    Nobody on here would ever do that.

      No. I'm a professional.

      I do drive around with my left turn signal flashing all day though. I do it because I like the clicky noise.

        On the advice of my attorney, and under my rights of the 5th amendment of the constitution I can not answer that question.

              lmao...

              My FTO asked me one day, "Are you going to pull over that guy over there?" while pointing across the street into the lane going to opposite direction as me.... I looked at him like he was crazy, wondering what I had missed, because I hadn't noticed any traffic infraction.... He said, "well, you've got the lights flashing, so I thought maybe you were going to pull him over!"

              I'd just done a traffic stop and forgot to turn the lights off... Oopsy...lol, and I was wondering why everyone was being so polite and getting out of the way!!

                Same story for me, except that I was putting up temporary no parking signs for a parade. Then, once I finished I immediately got a low priority call. I ended up driving code to a barking dog call and didn't realize it, complete with complete stops at stop signs and waiting at red lights. I even started silently cussing at the "moronic" (motoring) public for stopping at a green light.

                How embarrassed I was when I realized my folly.

                  Our cars are equiped with a system that applies an electic shock to the steering wheel and drivers seat every ten seconds when the lights are on to remind you, of course, it does make pursuits a bit more challenging.

                  I can honestly say that in 36 plus years I have never left the overheads on.

                        Left them on after a call without realizing it and drove directly to McDonalds...code. I can imagine what it looked like with me pulling up to the drive through with my lights on. I didn't realize it until I saw them reflecting on the outside of the building. Oops.

                          Never driven around with the full show on before.

                          I was on an animal call at 03:00(ish) in front of an apartment complex. I tossed a camera bag into the front seat, which bounced up and hit the siren. Stopped traffic while I was trying to find which one of the 4 siren buttons it had hit. That was pretty embarrassing.

                            Never. I never forgot to turn off all the lights after checking out the car at the start of swing shift because our switches back then had no clickers, and never drove six blocks on the busiest street in the county wondering why everyone was pulling out of my way until I saw the reflection of all those pretty red and blue lights on a chrome bumper. Nope, never happened.

                              Never left the overhead lights on but I will admit that I occasionally leave my arrow stick on. Stupid arrow stick controls don't make a sound when they are on.
