Light bars and beacons are mounted on the top of vehicles to provide a warning or to attract the attention of other motorists and pedestrians on the road. The most common vehicles which have these rotating or flashing lights are emergency vehicles. Police cars, paramedics, ambulances, fire engines, construction vehicles, and tow trucks are all examples of vehicles which display beacon lights or light bars.
The colours used in the lamps vary for every profession. The variation in colours aids identification both for motorists and other emergency vehicles. Amber lights are used by tow trucks, construction vehicles, and security personnel. The most easily recognisable are the blue and blue/red lights used by the police, fire and ambulance service. More unusual are the green lights used by volunteer firefighters and the violet lights used by funerary vehicles.
