    Can you give an example of the types of orders you're talking about? So far, the only person who can give lawful orders in most states that its illegal not to follow is a sworn law enforcement officer.

    Anyone else, not so much.

    In all cases, though, you can simply throw the person who isn't complying off the property after telling them they're no longer welcome. Private property = follow my orders or GET OFF MY LAWN.

      So if we've been told by a D/S thats it ok, and is not SOLID BURNING and only on private property for reasons where is would be necessary.
      Why play with fire would be my question to you ? Just 'cause some deputy says it's ok ?

      Stick with Amber/Green in the front, Amber/ Red in the back and you'll be fine.

        Well I can use any color to the front but blue/red, and any color but blue to the rear.

        Anyone ever seen STORBES in a FS Vector lightbar? (think CHP lightbars)

          The Chinese will put ANYTHING into a light bar. There's a company in CA that sells chinese import knock-off light bars. "Uniform Warehouse," perhaps you've herad of them. They have LED and strobe FS Streethawks, Vectors, Visions, you name it.

            yeah I've seen their bars around...while they do look good at first,and may be less expensive, what happens when they start having trouble ?

            I would rather spend abit more now and know that the major companies will service your bar because they want your repeat business once your fleet starts to grow...but that's just me.

              I can speak from experience on the Chinese bars... They are part-for-part compatible with FS. However, you can buy replacement parts from them. I would not send a light bar to factory repairs, mainly because I know how to repair and replace everything on them.

              As with anything, your mileage will vary.

                So you would buy them for a fleet if you couldn't repair/ replace parts on them yourself ?

                I ask because I will need to start buying lights in the near future... for both cars and motors...

                  Depends on how large the fleet is, and who's servicing them. I don't think the local Ford dealer will fix your Federal Signal stuff.

                    Ihaven't seen strobes, BUT I have seen some vids of the FS Vector/Vision lightbars with LEDs in then;

                    NYPD

                    As I understand it the red lights on the NPYD car are the LEDS (FS development called Solaris-pretty cool) and the clear lights are rotators/take downs/alley lights...

                          WRONG!! Red & blue lights are for EMERGENCY vehicles ONLY. (police & fire) Use a blue light around here, yer busted.

                            Just ignore the guy... he is trolling, and you are reacting exactly how he wants you to react.

                              if you fress like a police officer then publiuc views security officers as full police officers so we are allowed to use red and blue lughts, run red lights and have a siren
