New to this website, but i got a questions that needs some answers.
I recently saw a SECURITY car with flashing BLUE light at the REAR of the car while he was attending a scene of an accident> guess he saw it first and decided to make sure everyone was ok< the light was a SINGLE flash. Now the HTA doesn't really say much about NO BLUE to the BACK, only to the front, and i have seen a discussion on here that only PLOW trucks and police are allowed to have blue flashing lights?
Restriction on use of flashing blue light
(32) No person shall operate a lamp that produces intermittent flashes of blue light on a highway except,
(a) a person operating a road service vehicle in the circumstances described in subsection (31); or
(b) a person operating a police department vehicle, together with a lamp that produces intermittent flashes of red light, as permitted by subsection (14.1). 2007, c. 13, s. 17 (8).
Penalty ÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚â€œ commercial motor vehicle
My question is would that SECURITY guard get fined when police arrive? I mean he is trying to help someone and make sure that no further cars are included in the collision, however i have heard that a car can have ANY color of emergency lights at the back so long it is ONE flash? Can anyone help me out with this?
Thanks to all
