For the record My lightbar indeed saved my vehicle and perhaps my life as well as my family by giving me enough time to slow down and avoid 3 stray horses on the highway. This is why I find the "law" so frustrating. They help. I'm proof of that. One of my good friends just wrote off his Subaru because he swerved and avoided a moose and hit a tree. Had he had an LED light bar, which he now has on his new vehicle, He swears he could have slowed down and avoided a crash with the increased reaction time.

Stats by region.

Berz out.
Sorry, my post didn't apply to your situation - I was saved from hitting a deer just south of Cache Creek a couple years ago, thanks to my light bar.

I was responding to sebbery's typical stupidity a couple posts above mine.

Justice. Is. Served.

Edit. Also this was the "easy way out" for the officer and from what I understand my employee agreed to the new lightbar in lieu of other possible punishment for the officer.

How short was the wire cut that they agreed to buy a new light bar?

I doubt it had anything to do with WHERE it was cut... it was meant to get the message across that cutting it at all was not acceptable.

How was my comment stupid? I'm merely saying that if someone can't be trusted to operate an uncovered lightbar safely, then they shouldn't be trusted to use high-beams safely. Ergo, all high-beams should be kept covered in the event some dolt decides to use them on the road
