    Just know, I chose my own fate. I drove by the fork in the road and went straight.

    That's what I thought as well. However, I could not locate a "definitions" section in the AL traffic codes. Odd.

    Back to the OP's subject I would say your POV does NOT count a Authorized Emergency Vehicle, because of a few reasons.

    1.) No Audible Signal or Visiual Signal which can be seen 360 Degree
    2.) Its not been registered or inspected by the state to become emergency vehicle.
    3.) Its a POV and only a POV the dept does not own it

    That being said Im sure wig-wags are also illegal on POV's as they are here in NC.
    Also i would highly recommend to please drive carefully, obey all traffic laws and use due reguard for public saftey, ( the object is to get to the scene, you cant do much if you never make it there cause you got into a accident)

    Not the end of the earth but I can see it from here...


    Barry, with only a month on the department (sorry, a month ACTIVE with the department, whatever distinction that makes), there's about 1,000 things you could and should be studying to make yourself a safe, productive firefighter. Invest some of this energy you are expending in researching Alabama red light laws into some actual training....The payback will be much greater....

    Also...What does your chief allow you to run, and what is the accepted standard for your department?

    Others in my department have lights, but none of them have sirens.
    OK, so you already answered that question. So are you trying to "prove" to your chief that you are entitled to run a siren on your POV? Guess what....if the chief says you can't, you can't, regardless of what Alabama law says. And trying to prove you know better than the chief is a good way to ensure a nice, short career in the fire service.

    "I have a dream. It's not a big dream, it's just a little dream. My dream — and I hope you don't find this too crazy — is that I would like the people of this community to feel that if, God forbid, there were a fire, calling the fire department would actually be a wise thing to do. You can't have people, if their houses are burning down, saying, 'Whatever you do, don't call the fire department!' That would be bad."

    Thread closed since the question is answered.

    Folks, if you can't post without being rude, don't post at all! If you can't help yourself, we'll solve that problem for you.
