Re: Did he get a ticket?

Doesn't really help your assertion that emergency lights may not be as visible as we'd like to believe.

In some circumstances red flashing lights can be somewhat lost in the 'noise' if there's a lot of them around.

I've noticed in NZ in recent times ambulances and fire trucks now have red and white lights on all sides including to the rear. Police cars with blue and red lights haven't been quite so affected.

Makes them much more noticeable under adverse conditions. (But while it may lessen the incidence significantly, I bet it still won't stop twits driving into them!)
