Georgia State Law

I was putting 4 KC's on a light bar this weekend. Looks illegal?

Gatorman,
As a law enforcement officer in the metro Atlanta area I can assure you the lightbar is one of the LAST things we are worried about. Now as for if you live/go out into the more rural areas the local po-po may pay more attention to it. I suggest throwing a cover over them as Wolfpack said

Hope this helps
