Here is a link to the Code of Alabama that should help you. http://www.legislature.state.al.us/CodeofAlabama/1975/coatoc.htm My understanding is that only authorized emergency vehicles may use lighting other than that which was original factory installed. I believe only the Director of Public Safety or your municipal police chief may authorize any vehicle as an emergency vehicle. I know a lot of FFs in Alabama who run red lights on their personal vehicles, but they are only using them on the side of the roadway when the vehicles are stopped. I would think that when you begin to try and use them to affect traffic you would be asking for trouble.
