    Is off-duty NSW police allowed to have flashing lights fitted on their private car? Not sure if anyone has come across this issue before...

    Are you sure that you can distinguish between an unmarked police vehicle and an off duty officers private vehicle?

    The following is available from the Roads and Maritime website:

    Blue, or blue and red flashing lights are only be fitted to:

    • Police vehicles.
    • Ambulances solely used by the Ambulance Service of NSW
    • Operational fire brigade vehicles.
    • An RTA Traffic Commander or a Traffic Emergency Patroller
    State Emergency Service vehicles.
    • Vehicles used by an accredited rescue unit

    Blue and red flashing lights can only be used by a vehicle being used for police operational functions or urgent purposes.
