  • vehicle lightbars

    not really an important question but has anyone seen statetrooper pictures of their vehicles having a red and green lightbar? i just keep thinking that i seen one on some pictures a while back and was just wondering, anyone have pics of statetrooper with red and green lightbars?



    also is it legal to have security vehicles red and green lightbars?


    still no reply lol so i will add another question.

    do companies sell LED lighbars like:

    from Whelen btw, anyway do they sell LED ligtbars like this in LED where you can choose what colours to display and designs but only able to see white LED bulbs, so secretive that you can do red and blue or full yellow or green and blue etc... do they sell those kind of lightbars?

        Well I'm from California and never worked in any other state, but we're not overly restricted. (we won't get arrested for leaving our post like some other state; not comfirmed, don't ask)

            I'm not sure if I am understanding your question correctly. I think you are asking if the LED lightbars are clear when they are off? If that is the question, then yes... every LED lightbar I have seen is clear when they are turned off, unless for some odd reason they have exterior lenses, which is highly unlikely. One thing to remember... LED lightbars are more expensive when you order LEDs in white or blue, as they cost more to make those colors.

              yea that was kinda my question, but do they sell LED lighbars where at any time you feel like to change the color to anything? like one day you want to use full yellow than you wanna pull someone over you can quickly use red&blue than switch back to full red or blue or yellow? you know what i mean, to be able to change it to anything you desire?

                  LED light bars have clear external lenses, and "clear" LED elements. When the LED turns on, it turns on only one color. (Nobody bring up tri-color LEDs, they don't make them in emergency grade, yet...)

                  The reason the lenses are clear is for light transmission. The colored LEDs are very, very, bright and would bleed through any colored lens you put on them, most likely.

                  It is illegal in most states for a non emergency vehicle to use red or blue lights. Some states designate red for police, some designate blue. Security companies who are not law enforcement agencies (agents of the state, police, basically) cannot use those "emergency vehicle" colors.

                  Some companies (Whelen) make light bars that "change color." What they really do is put two or three kinds of LEDs into the row of LED. Some are red, some are amber, some are blue. These are for police, usually, since only police (in most states) can use red and blue.

                  Amber is for warning, like "I'm pulled over here, don't hit me!" It comes on alone, all the amber LEDs in the lightbar come on.
                  Red and blue are for pulling people over, or making people get out of the way. They both come on.

                  The Florida Highway Patrol (A police agency) has lightbars that sense if its night or day, and use red for night, blue for day. In Florida, you must stop for both.
