I live in a small town with a volunteer fire department. Our fire fighters have green flashing lights in their personal vehicles. They use these lights to indicate they are responding to a call, and to suggest other motorists should clear the road for them. This green light does NOT give them permission to ignore any rules of the road, including the speed limits. They are accorded some professional courtesy, but...
Everyone knows the volunteers “drive with purpose” and we all hope they aren’t headed to our house as we get out of their way. There haven’t been any accidents or collisions reported, but the local police have made it very clear that the repercussions will be severe. And if they are caught using the flashing green light at any other time, they will be punished by full process.
Huh, where was I going with this, before I got side tracked? Oh yeah: is the OP a volunteer fire fighter? Responding to a call on his bike? Or just a person blatantly ignoring federal motor vehicle standards (like the kool kidz with their pants falling down driving poorly modified rice rockets)?
Green turn signals = not good
