  • POV lights in NYS

    This seems like a broad subject with even broader rules and laws. Of course the law states 1 teardrop on your POV in blue color.

    I've also heard that wig-wags are illegal in NYS. However, why do a bunch of construction workers have them on their pickup trucks on the highway?

    Probies can't run lights in my FD, but I never asked about what you can run as a full member. I've also heard that blue/white combo is a no-no in NYS.

    So what have you seen or been told?
    Keep my mouth shut and ears open.
    Never forget 9/11/01, RIP Uncle James Ruggiero.

    John, do a search on this. There are many threads relating to POV lights and several for NY State.
    Stay Safe and Well Out There....

    Always remembering 9-11-2001 and 343+ Brothers

      I know, but all talk just about the laws really. I've never really seen anything on what each person thinks/does/sees.

            It's where all the emergency light guys hang out. Might be a better forum to ask light questions in, rather than here on FH.com, where warning light discussions are generally frowned on.

              Good idea. Yeah, it wasn't so much of a discussion I was hoping for, more opinions on what people see acceptable, not like "show me your setup" kinda thing. I might as well as wait and see what my FD has in their SOP and ask the chief.

                375 ... 41 ... 4. Blue Light. One blue light may be affixed to any motor vehicle owned by a volunteer member of
                a fire department or on a motor vehicle owned by a member of such person's family residing in the
                same household or by a business enterprise in which such person has a proprietary interest or by
                which he is employed, provided such volunteer fireman has been authorized in writing to so affix a
                blue light by the chief of the fire department or company of which he is a member, which
                authorization shall be subject to revocation at any time by the chief who issued the same or his
                successor in office. Such blue light may be displayed by such volunteer fireman on such a vehicle
                only when engaged in an emergency operation.

                Cops around here leave the blue lighters alone ... pretty sure this is still current law tho.
