NEVER underestimate the umm.... 'dedication and devotion' of the police. This was is my decorated microbus. Magnets and a 400w inverter allow me to drive down the road lit up. NO flashing lights.
Officer #1 (blacked out in the pickup) was all gung ho, but refused to give me a ticket when I informed him that I wanted one to put with the picture. Wouldnt even give me a written warning. Wimp. Officer #2 was VERY amused by the whole stop, and allowed me to take this picture.
On seeing the flash, Officer#1 got on the PA and firmly directed me to return to the driver seat. Priceless picture.
Notable Quotes from the event:
Officer1: Did you lose the rest of the parade? (Not a bad line
Officer1: Motorists could see them <red and blue bulbs> and mistake you for an emergency vehicle!
Volkemon: Sure, if they lived in a circus!
Officer2: <Suddenly has to...'cough'... and turns away to compose himself>
So be ready to turn them off/take them off at a moments notice. And ALWAYS smile and be polite to the officers. Never hurts.
