New 2012 Law: SB 956/PA 97-0039 - Emergency Lights
Emergency Lights (SB 956/PA 97-0039): Allows a blue oscillating, rotating, or flashing light to be used when parked or stationary at the scene of a fire, rescue call, ambulance call, or motor vehicle accident.
- Does this mean in the past we've been breaking the law by responding with POVs and leaving them lit?
- Can we now use our lights at an accident scene to direct traffic or protect a scene?
-- If Yes, is this only after being toned (bonified emergency still applies I am guessing)
-- What if you witness? Doing this before you are toned.
-- What if out of district? (guessing this is no, as it wouldn't count as bonified emergency unless paged).
Was just curious if anyone had more information on this.
