Police watchdog calls for national guidelines on alternative way to hide blue lights when not in use following car crash. Police officers have been using nylon tights to cover up discreet blue lights fitted on unmarked cars to make it harder for members of the public to spot them when they are switched off. But now the police watchdog, the Independent Office for Police Conduct IOPC , has called for national guidelines on how to hide the blue lights when not in use after a crash involving an unmarked car in which tights had been used. An investigation by the force concluded that covering the blue lights with tights had dimmed them and may have contributed to the crash.

The company accepts all brands and colors of stockings , tights, and knee highs for recycling.

And keep in mind that all used CFLs should be recycled. The lightbulbs contain small amounts of mercury that is only released when they break, and CFLs often break when tossed in the trash, landfill, or incinerator.
Police are told to stop hiding blue lights with nylon tights on unmarked cars
True or false? Silk or nylon panty hose can be used in emergencies in cars that have V belts. Position the panty hose around the pulleys and tie them in a knot. Then drive the car to the closest garage. Panty hose can be used for other auto emergencies.
