    I have an amber/green roof light, I'll have to get a night video of it. I went with SoundOff because I'm sick of the garbage from Whelen.

    You can get almost any bar just have to add the green they won't sell it to you with them in already. unless your state dot has approved them or your a chain of command leader and prove it. only cause green is mostly used for command center.

    Not every company has the green avaiable. I did not require any special permit to purchase the green / amber lights I have and operate them with out any problems from our local law enforcement agencies. I use mine for snow plowing, assisting broke down motorist, and storm spotting and as long as I am not operating them while driving on city street there is No problem. You need to check with your local law enforcement agencies to see what they will allow and if given the privliage to use different colors dont abuse it
