Huh.. Well, that doesn't really bother me as a driver, as I really hate the
blue lights. As a 'free' citizen, that does bother me.

I hope there is some training (ha yah right) for officers to distinguish

alternating flashes, with the headlights on, and the high beams flashing.
Even the 'undercover' cars with the lights in the grille, without the
'speed brake' on top.
