• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Sorry if this isn't the correct area to ask but what equiptment is required to get your front head lights to flash like the cop cars? Where might one find it as well.

I use a complex series of pulleys and string to pull large pieces of rectangular black cardboard up and down over the headlights. In alternating jerks of course.

Once you've mastered the timing and also, steering with your knees, why not add an impressive police siren to the show? Simply lower window, extend head outward and yell in loud whooping tone.

Just watch those stupid citizens get out of your way...

Yes, perhaps you can provide information as to why you are seeking the equipment?

Say, you fellas wouldn't happen to know where I left my handcuffs and Highway Patrol motorcycle would you? I swear they were just here a minute ago.
Wonder where I can get new ones? Not so much the bike but they just hate when we lose those official handcuffs..


Just remember - it's not really a date if she's in the trunk...

That was wrong, yes? I went too far? Sorry. I'm done.

Because there are sick wackos out there that try to pull people over.... Would you want to be pulled over by someone like him? Possibly get shot, raped, or worse? If he is not in law enforcement, then he has no business getting "flashing lights". If he were a real cop, as mentioned before, then his department would be able to do this for him or tell him were to buy. End of story..........

I have to agree with mpg0515. Having been in public safety for nearly 15 years, I can assure you that anyone who needs flashing headlights would have the means to go about getting them. Coming to a scanner board just doesn't seem legit for most folks (including me...).

I just thought I would add in before this thread gets closed..... Colorado has a law that makes it a felony for anyone impersonating a police officer either by car or uniform. It is called the Lacy Miller Law. Some dumbass impersonated a police officer, pulled her over and later killed her. (http://www.crossroadssafehouse.org/LacysAbout.htm) Although he is probably not in Colorado, I think that this should be a law everywhere.
