CA law doesn't technically require the rear amber... there is a post about it somewhere else in the vintage section. The CTS has the rear amber towards the middle...

On this side of the ocean, we all thought the Cal law requires a Steady red to the front and a Flashing Amber tro the rear. Are we wrong ?

This afternoon, I downloaded the Title 13 for fun (reading a title for fun? am I insane? :lol: )


Red steady lamp to the front, and additionnal red and/or blue for police cars.


Amber seems to be for Tow truck.


The weird thing is the 45° amber light restriction.


In case of a rotating device the lamp shall be covered with opaque material reaching to the top of the lighted area.


A revolving lamp may instead be equipped with a device that turns each light source off during the forward three-fourths of its rotation.



I don't remeber the amber aerodynics to be "restricted". :?
