  • another lighting question

    i stop at alot of accidents and offer assistance in my own POV. i happen to do it alot on the highways(87 and 90 mainly). i kinda get antsy about getting hit. would i need a blue light card to have them on my vehicle if i'm not using them to respond to my department?

    You won't get one for that. Don't waste anymore time thinking about it. There are far more important things to worry about than the color of a blinking light.
    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

      Safety is the uptmost importance - both yours and the ppl you are stopping to help out.

      Having a blue light card is more of a technicality, and you are supposed to have one just for running your blue light in your department - irregardless of whether or not you are running it outside of district.

      I agree with nmfire, technicalities be damned when safety is on the line. I would also suggest supplementing your blue with other warning devices - one blue tear drop doesn't exactly scream "watch out for me i'm parked on the side of the road".

          In NY only emergency vehicles can run white. Not sure about your area but technically you can only have 1 light. I know having a dash light (I have one too) isn't 360 degrees and would love to run one in the rear as well but don't want to run the risk of a Trooper being annoyed by it. Locals wouldn't say anything. But I travel a lot and its such a pain to take it down.

          Run Amber in the rear it adds to your safety.

          White tends to blind drivers behind you.

            aite...i'm thinkin blue rear facing wouldnt be so bad...the mini phantom is suction cup mounted so i dont think it would be that big of a pain to take off when not in use...maybe if i could do blue/amber...
