Hey guys, Long time lurker, first time poster (I'm not a LEO), but thought you guys would love this one. Came across this in NYC. After doing some research, there's apparently a new express bus service through the MTA. It gets it's own lane and makes limited stops. The best part: it flashes fricken blue lights all the time. I realize that police use red in NY, but there's some movement to get it yanked. http://www.silive.com/news/index.ssf/2012/09/officials_call_on_mta_to_stop.html The flashing blue lights used on the Select Bus Service are controversial and violate the New York State Vehicle and Traffic Law (Article 9, Section 375 (41)). NYS Law states "The use of blue lights on vehicles shall be restricted for use only by a volunteer firefighter" and "may be affixed to a police vehicle and fire vehicle, provided that such blue light or lights shall be displayed on a police vehicle and fire vehicle for rear projection only.". MTA Select Bus Service uses flashing blue forward projecting lights which violate the New York State VTL. Being a MA resident, it was quite unnerving to be in front of one of them!
