Up here a blue light is signature for a volunteer fireman. Not police vehicle. Like you explained. Several states (mostly down south) have a no exterior blue light law because their police use predominantly blue lights. So volunteer fireman from the north who have fixed blue lenses must cover them if traveling through these states.

Interesting. In the 7 law enforcement academies I've graduated from in which I studied with law enforcement officers from all over the US and a few from England, I have never met any cop in a red uniform or a red car or with exclusively red lights... The international symbol for law enforcement is a blue line....

But hey maybe I didn't meet enough Yankee cops. The rest of the United States and most of the world uses blue.

In any case, both red and blue exterior lights are illegal here with the only exception being red marker and signal lamps. And no colored light may be displayed on any license plate here with the exception of some antique vehicles.

Ok, we'll first off...I was simply asking you a question. My response to you was not being stated in a sarcastic manner in any way. As I sated in a previous post, any additional colored lighting with the exception of the stock colors on the car is illegal in most if not all states.

I wasn't questioning your knowledge, and as I stated many police departments do use blue lights as their primary light. I was not doubting that in any way. As I also said, up here, us YANKEES use red and white. Last I checked, unless I'm color blind, the lights on the top of my cruiser are red and white. However, within the last three years, one of our five lense covers was changed to blue. Not because of any specific emergency vehicle standards but simply because of scientific testing that drunks react better to a blue light added to our existing red and white.

Here in the Yankee states, volunteer fireman are the ones authorized to use blue lights and are issued special permits giving them the authority to display them.

Plus what does the color of a uniform or car have anything to do with this topic?

You said red was traditionally the color of police and blue was firefighters. I basically said that I've never met a red cop. Not trying to be sarcastic. Really don't know that I've met very many Yankee cops. Kinda touchy up there are we?! Sheesh..... ;-)

I think he was referring to the type of signal lights they use on their cars and trucks. The question I think is that if the Federal government will ever step in and decide to have state department and agencies either use blue or red. What's most important is knowing what the color light means if you should drive through different states in the country.

I think the Feds use red though and secret service uses red lights as well.

I think the Canadian Mountees where red uniforms.

When you get knee-deep in a situation, floor it.

Delta, my apologies, read your past after being chewed out by an @sshole supervisor so was not in a good mood when I read your response and I interpreted it wrong.

I was just trying to explain the differences in many law enforcement agencies. (Even though we are the best one up here). Lol, JK! 😜

haha! I was wondering,,,. You may be the best! Our lazy paperwork heavy politics driven beuropopos down here don't have a claim on it. Only thing we're good at is giving "warnings" and snatching up people with warrants from other agencies. LoL

Edit: That and breaking up fights. We turn into monsters during crowd control.... Must be stress relief for the patrol guys. :shrug:
