Police lights are special lights that are manufactured to be attached to the top of the police car so that they can be immediately identified and their demands can be complied with by the ordinary civilian public. A police light has many functions. The main purpose is to make the public aware that the car is a car that belongs to the law enforcement agency and that they should comply with the demands of the police officer sitting inside the car. It also helps the public know if there is an emergency going on. If the lights of a police car are flashing, the civilian public will immediately know that they should clear the way and move out of the path of the police car as there is a police emergency going on.
These lights are arguably one of the most important assets of the police car as they are a way of communicating quickly without words and they can get the communication accomplished in a very short period of time thereby giving the police officers much more time to attend to the emergency at hand. Traditional police lights were bulbs that flashed on and off. This is a rather inefficient method and with the advent of LED lights this trend is catching up with the police as well. Nowadays, police lights are also LED lights. The advantages that led lights have to offer are numerous that bulbs just cannot offer. He LED police lights are much quicker to turn on and hence much more efficient. They are also much more intense than other traditional light bulbs and hence get the job done better by being visible at further distances. Another great benefit is that since they can be rapidly flashed on and off, there is no need for a rotation mechanism in the lights, thereby saving the costs.
