    So, as long as you do not turn them on, you are absolutely legal. The other poster just mentioned that if they are looking for a police impersonator in your area, you could get stopped and questioned if your vehicle matches the description.

    That is NOT correct information you are giving out. This legal opinion from the AG's office helps clear this up.

    Who cares! Have we forgotten that MB in TBROC is still married to an embezzler and that he is a SAC who has not been investigated by Tallahassee?

    Just spray paint "not a cop" on your car and you will be fine.

    No one want's to be a cop now days, not even the posers. It's more of a joke than anything now.

    And asking FDLE agents about lights on a car is like asking Bruce Jenner about tampons.

    MB will get to retire before the thief goes to court! The legacy of this BS leadership team... sadly the next group is even worse

    You are correct, I failed to take into consideration the 843 statute, as I didn't look that far. I have been retired a long time and I failed to recall that statute.

    I don't know about cops today, but I guess there are some out there that even though the lights "appear" white and the wires are cut, would still give him a hard time. I could understand it if the the lights actually showed blue or were connected. But, that's just my opinion and not the statute.

    My bad on the bad advice.

    The real reason that we can't have the Ten Commandments posted in a
    courthouse is this: You cannot post "Thou Shalt Not Steal," "Thou Shalt
    Not Commit Adultery," and "Thou Shall Not Lie" in a building full of
    lawyers, judges and politicians...It creates a hostile work environment.
