old school walmart blinky!!!

volume warning....

AWWW junior has his own truck now... and doesnt know how to wire it up....

dont know whats worse, the shooter's voice or the video quality...
 
I'm gonna give the Murphy Ford Focus vehicle the benefit of the doubt, because even though they are using a subpar beacon, they are only using A beacon. No LED lights everywhere, no full-size bars, no HAWs or LAWs, and no extra crap to distract & confuse. I'd tell 'em to go on eBay and find a Federal/Whelen/Code 3 rotating light so it's safer, but also say that's ALL you need. Nothing else!

The 2 cops didn't say anything to him lol
 
if he is a actual wrecker he can have Red Blue its new Texas move over law. If he is not police he can have amber blue or blue white no big deal. In Texas. But if he is not a wrecker or police fire or ems he cant have red mixed with blue white or red alone.

Check this out - check out the wiring job under the hood and in the trunk on the crown vic with the Whelen lightbar...smh.
I came across that vid a week or so ago. With all the effort that guy put into the outward appearance, I was a little surprised in what a mess it was under the hood, but then I realized that I shouldn't be surprised in the least. "Final Form", indeed.

What I want to know is, does it count as "whack" to not have any wiring at all, like another guy who posts CVPI videos and sticks dummy mag mount antennas (mostly the pucks) all over it. The installs definitely look clean...

Saw this at work today. Maybe they figured "back rack" meant the lights had to be tilted back. To be honest, I was surprised to see the lights were actually somewhat visible to the rear and sides like this. Just no forward or off angle warning, and not super effective to the rear.

Who did this clown say he worked for in Miami? Because he does NOT look like a leo...
No idea, but if I had to guess, I'd say one of those on-call auxiliary police agencies. Don't those generally allow folks to outfit their POVs a little because they don't provide actual cars or much else for them to use?

My second guess would be a bounty hunter, which would be a very loose definition of LEO, Very, very loose definition of LEO...

Depending on the department and the chief they may be allowed to have lights on their POV, otherwise that's a negative.

Look at these clowns in FL running funeral escorts with illegal green, red and white leds along with sirens! Luckily I was waaay out of my jurisdiction for me to have a "chat" with them. LoL
I thought purple was pretty universal for funeral convoys, seems nobody really uses it, though.

They're probably playing very close to the line on those cars. I don't know many states' laws, but I read-up on my own because I buy and sell an assortment of decommissioned stuff (one of the auctions posts the relevant statute with the lot if they know the color(s) are regulated). Everything here seems to be concerned with forward-facing lights, from how it reads, you could fill your rear window with strobes & crap as long as not a single unauthorized color faces forward.

Some of those funeral escort vids scream shenanigans though. The sirens are completely unnecessary and obnoxious, as is trying to make everyone on the road stop and pull over, regardless of direction of travel. Seriously, is that really legal? Dead people have no urgency to get to their hole in the ground. I get that they want to maintain convoy integrity, but there are less obnoxious and much more effective ways to accomplish that result.

Well those pics didn't show the front, the front is just as bad including HLF! They actually stop traffic at intersections and move drivers out of their way during these escorts. COMPLETELY ILLEGAL in FL I found some other guy on Instagram who works with them and it gets even worse...

I wonder what they'd do if folks just ignored them and refused to yield. That's the sort of foolishness I'd challenge if I was driving around in their proximity. I'd probably even go out of my way to get in their way, hoping they'd give me an excuse to call the real police over their aggressive driving.
