Unbelievable blue light behaviour in a queue - krs one
Whilst sitting in a big fat jam on London's picturesque North Circular this morning, the driver of the car in front of me reached out of his front window and placed a blue flashing light on the roof of his car. He then made a three point turn in the middle of three lanes of traffic , as the chaos ensued he drove against the traffic to make his exit the wrong way down a busy slip road, from where he drove off into a side road.
Now I'm not sure which emergency service this was , but I can't think of any that drive around in a ratty Mk1 Mondeo , with a private number plate, and a blue flashing light that looked like it came out of a cracker. Also the driver looked at least 70 and as soon as he was out of the traffic his flashing light was quickly yanked back into the car.

Amazing.

How much is a convincing magnetic blue on Ebay?

We should all have them for those irksome logjam moments.

could have been an auxillary coastgaurd member, we have them in this neck of the woods that use thier own cars, but are allowed to use a "blue" to get through traffic in answer to a "shout".

You'll be wanting a flashing red light in that case, and the brown Buick to put it on. Cooool!

I often think that displaying "Surveying" or "Motorway Maintenance" would give the most licence to drive anywhere, but without the risk of actually impersonating anyone.

Forget flashing blue or red lights, buy a batmobile!
