The police car revolving light


Remember the police action dramas of old, in the 70s? Plain-clothes detectives riding in their unmarked police cars, probably munching on donuts when they receive a call on their CB radios. Immediately they spring into action, one of them rolling their windscreen down and then sticking a revolving light on top of the car, making it an instant police car with the sirens blaring. It always fascinated me as a kid to see that. Today, while on the bus, I came across one such light. You can see the cable linking into what is presumably the car’s cigarette lighter socket that is on the dashboard. But this is not a police car. It was a car parked at the side of the road. bit of an anti-climax for me but what the heck, it sure brought back those memories…
