Thank gawd in my county in VA and surrounding counties they dont allow volunteer firefighters to mount lights like that on their POVs. Some of them would use them to beat rush hour traffic home and who knows what else. And my bro and sis are volunteer firefighters for Fairfax County and my brother in law is a battalion chief with the airport so I dont need to hear any grief. My sis was volunteer firefighter of year one year in Ffx Cty.
Mounting lights to look cool please.
Well, to your first point, well, you're wrong.. On two separate occasions, while parking in front of me, someone hit the front of my rig. They sustained bumper and quarter panel damage, not me. The only damage I sustained was their paint on my guard. Maybe that's because I'm in that 98%!
As for your statement about mounting lights to look cool. Who said that? I drive to the Berkshire mountains at least a half dozen times a year and without auxiliary lights, it's really difficult to see that possum you live in fear of hitting.
