No Longer Just Blue Lights for Florida Troopers; Look for Red and Amber in Your Rear Window

The Florida Highway Patrol is getting a new look for the road. A new light system is being installed on top of each patrol car to keep troopers safe.

Gone are the single blue lights. Now, sensors trigger red lights during the day and blue lights at night along with filtered in amber bars.

It comes following studies which show human eyes see red better during the day.

And the system has a different ring to it; a siren sounds off as well. When it's all said and done it lights up to one goal: more lives saved.

Troopers say the new red light system costs $2,100 per car. Fifteen have already been outfitted in south Florida.
