I_Don't_Want_FOP: [img.fark.net image 195x259]Wanted for questioning.
Recoil Therapy: "He said his emergency lights are for his job as a mechanic and he's never pulled anyone over before. "Ok, does anyone want to take a guess at a legitimate reason that he would need a light bar as a mechanic? I've been scratching my head for a few minutes & can't come up with one.The police ought to look into unsolved rapes or even murders in the area & see if he fits in there somewhere. I sincerely doubt that this was the first time that he's pulled anyone over.
AndreMA: I thought that varied by state, but yeah. Impersonating a cop is frowned upon.
downstairs: I think its pretty common knowledge that you're not allowed to have red and/or blue flashing lights. Yellow is for non-cop/fireman/ambulance trucks. Yellow lights anyone can have.
MNguy: You're a dipshiat if you have any kind of lights on your car that aren't factory.
"Chill out, you guys. He's just part of the neighborhood watch."
downstairs: Yellow is for non-cop/fireman/ambulance trucks.
YoOjo: Another foiled Rapey McRapekins.He'll try it again, guarantee it. Maybe differently now he's in the news for this method but he'll continue harassing women.
hardinparamedic: Police, Emergency Responders, and people who have business requesting the right of way in an emergency, or pulling you over do not run amber lights. They either run Red, Blue, Red/Clear, Blue/Clear, Red/Blue, or a mixture of Red and Blue with another color.
basemetal: /if you wannabe a cop//go become a cop///earn it
AndreMA: This cries out for standardization. Given that just about every police agency receives Federal funds to some degree, it would seem simple to condition some of those funds such that all new light-bars comply with some standard and that all old ones be replaced within 7 years.
hardinparamedic: basemetal: /if you wannabe a cop//go become a cop///earn itCome to Memphis. The police want you, for crap pay and long hours! And if you're a felon*, it's no problem! They'll second chance you!/*non-drug and non-sexual violence.//No. I'm not being sarcastic or kidding.
Recoil Therapy: Ok, does anyone want to take a guess at a legitimate reason that he would need a light bar as a mechanic? I've been scratching my head for a few minutes & can't come up with one.
fredklein: So, it's illegal to stop a suspected drunk driver (thereby possibly saving lives), but it's perfectly okay for a store to tackle and handcuff a suspected shoplifter (thereby saving a dozen eggs)(Fark main page, 6 stories down).
Eps05: Volunteer firemen in Canada are usually green. Public works in Ontario are yellow and blue.It's all weird everywhere
hardinparamedic: Red lights are law enforcement, and blue lights are volunteers there.
