Chicago Adopts White Flashers on Fire Trucks

It is reported the Chicago Fire Department has replaced red lights on its fire apparatus with white flasher lights.

According to Fire Commissioner Robert J. Quinn, the white light is more effective in signaling motorists to pull to the curb to permit passage of fire vehicles.

The new lights can be seen about a mile, it is reported, and they flash ahead and to both sides of the fire engines.
