Blue Lights are 'sposed to be on

In response to 144840: Blue Light Protocol, posted by Henry W on Tuesday, 27 April 2021, at 11:43 a.m.

The steady blue lights on police cars are always supposed to be on when the police are working. (Which is the case in Honolulu.) But somehow, here the Big Island police departments just overlook the need for their blue lights to be on as if it doesn't matter.

I'm not sure why no blue lights. Maybe the police departments imagine it makes the police more "stealthy," so they can spot people doing things that deserve ticketing...or something like that. Who knows? It could be just purely negligence.

When my friend noticed the difference from being in Honolulu and called up the Police Dept. and said something about it...she then noticed for awhile the police cars had their blue lights on when patroling.

...Then time went on, and these lights were off again.

Personally, I prefer the police having a blue light on all the time to identify them.

There are so many drivers here who wrap a blue thing around their car surf racks that looks sort of like a police light on the top of the car that's off.

I don't like to wonder if some random car parked on the side of the road is a police car or not. It bugs me that there are so many random cars used as police vehicles - the steady identifying blue light is a useful identifier.

What do you think?
