Re: Parking on Blackburn road

i think if i recall correctly your allowed blue lights but it depends where they are fitted and how

it would be a lot simpler to ban any car except emergency vehicles from having blue lights , even a doctor on call has a green flashing light and not blue light so why a piza delivery car or a clapped out bmw needs blue lights i have no idea but bare in mind a lot of boy racers make these kind of modifications when they attempt to make their 1.2 corsa look like somthing out of need 4 speed or teh fast and teh furious lol

dont want to stray too far off topic but if a rapist put blue led's in his grill for example a somone at night could easily be tricked into pulling over and stopping

Am going back a number of years (around 10 or so) when this kind of thing started becoming popular my ex had green side light bulbs. When spotted by the police he was pulled over and asked if he was a dr, member of the medical profession etc, which obviously he wasnt so he was given a producer and had to return to the police station in either a week or two weeks to prove that he had replaced the green bulbs with clear white ones. They were illegal to have back then unless you were an emergency vehicle of some description. Am not sure but it seems like this law has either been changed or they no longer bother enforcing it anymore. He did also get stopped for driving with his fog lights on when it wasnt foggy and the officer had a firm word in his ear about driving with fog lights on when there is no need, think this is something else that they no longer bother about, or so it seems. I was told many back then that the coloured side lights, under car lighting etc was fine for show purposes but illegal to use on the roads. Now it seems to be the norm for many cars

And as for the rapist scenario, i was told by my driving instructor that if i was unsure about stopping (being flashed to pull over at night etc and was travelling alone) then to make my way to the police station or somewhere safe and stop there where i felt safer to do so. Am sure that most police officers would understand if someone did this if they were unsure of what was happening (although on the other hand guess that they could class it as refusing to stop)

Who/which are these certain sections of the community that people keep referring to?

Are they related to the Blackburn motorists who share the same privileges on Audley Range and Whalley Range?

I agree but as most Police Stations are shut at night a well lit garage with CCTV is a good option

Re: Parking on Blackburn road

* According to Regulation 11 of the Road Vehicles Lighting Regulations only red light may be shown from the rear of a vehicle. There are a very few exceptions to this, including amber from indicators.
* Red light must never be shown at the front of a vehicle
* Blue should be avoided, since it is strongly associated with emergency vehicles.
* The law covers lamps at the front and sides, and not light coming from the underside of vehicles. Neon systems aren't lamps, but they do create light that's easily seen. The wisest course is to abide by the colour regulations outlined: red at the rear, amber at the side, and white in front.
