It gets really good at 4:53. (It's a wonder this driver didn't kill someone.)

What the heck is on that truck at 4:43?

8.5/10 on the lights. Passable flash patterns on the LEDs but they're 1st-gen and not synchronized, and I do very much like the oscillating SLR beacons. And any Centurion without too many empty sections is just, like, idk this world just needs more of them or something, extra points for that. Steady burn red could be brighter but at least it's symmetrical. (Lower level left and right of lightbar, washed out by the sun and video quality.) Intersection warning is adequate but could be better.

They are great for light output and durability...but MY GOD does taking the lenses off these bars suck a giant ass! Trust me....I've been through this pain. Worst lense securing design by Whelen.....PERIOD.

The wig-wags garner the most attention.

I like the stutter-two tone.

At least they don't use that stupid 3 tone that France uses. (Too much time with no warning sound.)

The Spanish use that 3 tone, only without the gap.

Meanwhile in Holland....

France is using only two tone sounds but have five different sounds.

One for the Police, one for the Gendarmerie, one for the Fire Service, one for the UMH/SAMU ( mobile hospitals/emergency ambulances) and one for the private ambulances/medical transports).

It is the latter one that use two tones in sequence of three with a gap between these groups of sounds.
420hz + 516hz + 420hz + 1,5 second gap.

I can agree of that this siren sounds stupid but these ambulances are not emergency ambulances and have not the same priority in traffic.
Probably because of the lower priority the siren sound different than high priority vehicles.

Some oddballs in this, even for the UK. Some new vehicles, old vehicles, total variety of light setups and an old Met Police Vauhxall Zafira (It's the black unmarked one) with one of my favourite sirens on it.

The Beemer at 3:04 with red to the rear, while moving! I knew I've seen it. Another at 11:53.

I like the big vans with 2 bars on them.

What's the tiny red Ford at 4:06?

DPG - Diplomatic Protection Group and I believe it's a 2018 Ford C-Max

I agree of that it sounds good.
Do you know of what siren that is, exactly?

It's a mystery one really, some people think it's an Old Redtronic, others think it's a Premier Hazard variant. I'd lean towards Redtronic personally.

Here's a better example of it:

I told you the Scandies have some odd things going on...

I really like the Danish Police's beacon usage - minimalist yet effective

A photo of a preserved Nottingham City Fire Brigade appliance. It entered service in 1940, and you'll notice that the vehicle was equipped with a mechanical siren. At the time Nottingham City was unique in Britain for using sirens rather than bells on all its emergency vehicles..

1. Good job chocking the tires before righting that vehicle.

2. They'd always be in sync if you hooked each horn relay to the individual light circuit.

Running code in a tow truck :)


Some of the stuff Mr Pratt and Midwest deal with is pretty insane (I've been subbed to his channel for ages). The recent Fed-Ex one was quite the recovery
