    What's up with all your pointless "what's up" questions today? Are you working on your stand-up routine?

    What's is up with that "South Dakota" style light bar ?...is it law that Law Enforcement have to have a combination of Red, Amber, Clear and Blue to the front ?

    I've seen these Unity lights in action here back in the 70's when a local VFD guy had one on his landboat...believe me...you could see that thing in bright daylight where the Houston, TX PD's Federal 175 bubblegum lights were all but visible.

    Really? A monumental change? Wow. Let me mark that one down in my diary then for generations to come to read and enjoy.

    MSP still retains the "split streak" sealed beam red rotator and they still have the lighted "Stop" panel on the front hood. However, they have since replaced the 2 flashing red sealed beam rear deck lights with one red and one blue strobe light. The use of any type of blue emergency light on their cars is a monumental change for the otherwise tradition rich MSP.

    You are correct I have never been to Michigan. I live in southern Illinois and a lot of our rual fire departments have equipment that has been in use since the 1960's and 70's that is equipped with a gumball lamp or those huge boxy looking lightbars from the 70's. Those lights rotate very slowly and don't seem to catch the attention of other motorists as well as the MX700 on my squad car. That is what my opinion was based on. I will agree with you that it is nice to see the Michigan State Police keep a tradition alive.

    There was a comment earlier about a bad lighting system on a squad car with the two bars that run across the front and back windshield. This is the lighting system that I cannot believe the Michigan State Police are still using. I hope they have strobes in the grill or on the dash, because while theses gumball lamps look nice they are surley hard to see in heavy traffic.

    Hard to see? You must not get to Michigan much. These roof lights use 6" Halogen spotlight bulbs and get the attention of motorists quite quickly. They also have twin spotlights and flashing headlights to the front and auxiliary package shelf lights to the rear. Being seen when they're all lit up is not a problem with the Michigan State Police.

    There is one bigger reason that the Michigan cars use the single red light: TRADITION
