There is a bill pending in the General Court that is coming up for a hearing on September 29, 2005. It will change 90-7E to include ANY blue lights mounted on a vehicle and will limit red lights to the rear of the car. This is new language added to the existing law, so red/blue flashing and rotating lights still need a permit. However, non-flashing blue lights will be prohibited and non-flashing red lights must be in the rear. This will make it much simpler to enforce than the current 90-7E. Go to www.mass.gov/legis/bills/house/ht02/ht02232.htm to view the bill. It is House bill number 2232. If you would like to support it, the Transportation Committee will accept written testimony.
