Cop Lights Illegal?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kbdR7...eature=related

I was looking around and i think it would be pretty sick to just have some cop lights for when u go to the desert or something? a party maybe? are they illegal? if your not using them to mess with people.

They are illegal even in the desert. Granted its hard to get caught when nobody can see you but we tried it one time so we could go out on a night ride and always see the guy in the back. BLM didn't think it was funny. We got chewed out pretty good.

illegal on the road, at least where I live, and I'm sure even off-road you could get pinned for impersonating an officer if you did something that merited attention from the law

The one time you "accidentally" turn them on and get caught, will make you wish you never had them in the first place. Either become a cop, or don't put them on.

Being "technically" legal might not get you carted downtown but it certainly won't win you any friends in the LE community. Prolly not the best move to make... just sayin'

Seeing how you are in California I would review the vehicle codes.

They can be found here.

Regarding flashing lights on a vehicle.

It states
Quote:
Flashing Lights

25250. Flashing lights are prohibited on vehicles except as otherwise permitted.

Amended Ch. 223, Stats. 1963. Effective September 20, 1963.
Permitted flashing lights
Quote:
Permitted Flashing Lights

25251. (a) Flashing lights are permitted on vehicles as follows:
(1) To indicate an intention to turn or move to the right or left upon a roadway, turn signal lamps and turn signal exterior pilot indicator lamps and side lamps permitted under Section 25106 may be flashed on the side of a vehicle toward which the turn or movement is to be made.
(2) When disabled or parked off the roadway but within 10 feet of the roadway, or when approaching, stopped at, or departing from, a railroad grade crossing, turn signal lamps may be flashed as warning lights if the front turn signal lamps at each side are being flashed simultaneously and the rear turn signal lamps at each side are being flashed simultaneously.
(3) To warn other motorists of accidents or hazards on a roadway, turn signal lamps may be flashed as warning lights while the vehicle is approaching, overtaking, or passing the accident or hazard on the roadway if the front turn signal lamps at each side are being flashed simultaneously and the rear turn signal lamps at each side are being flashed simultaneously.
(4) For use on authorized emergency vehicles.
(5) To warn other motorists of a funeral procession, turn signal lamps may be flashed as warning lights on all vehicles actually engaged in a funeral procession, if the front turn signal lamps at each side are being flashed simultaneously and the rear turn signal lamps at each side are being flashed simultaneously.
(b) Turn signal lamps shall be flashed as warning lights whenever a vehicle is disabled upon the roadway and the vehicle is equipped with a device to automatically activate the front turn signal lamps at each side to flash simultaneously and the rear turn signal lamps at each side to flash simultaneously, if the device and the turn signal lamps were not rendered inoperative by the event which caused the vehicle to be disabled.
(c) Side lamps permitted under Section 25106 and used in conjunction with turn signal lamps may be flashed with the turn signal lamps as part of the warning light system, as provided in paragraphs (2) and (3) of subdivision (a).
(d) Required or permitted lamps on a trailer or semitrailer may flash when the trailer or semitrailer has broken away from the towing vehicle and the connection between the vehicles is broken.
(e) Hazard warning lights, as permitted by paragraphs (2) and (3) of subdivision (a) may be flashed in a repeating series of short and long flashes when the driver is in need of help.

Amended Sec. 23, Ch. 945, Stats. 1997. Effective January 1, 1998.
From what I gather in my research and lack of effort to post up... In short You can have them you just can't use them.

Theyre freakin sweet... I must agree.

BUT, no bueno. The charge of "Impersonating a Cop", does not go over very well in the judicial system. Dont do it.
