Emergency Vehicles

It seems they often run with lights flashing when there is no emergency. Why?

I asked this question when I was in Ponce. The answer I received, was that if they were in the car, the lights had to be on.

lol

it is a rule... at night they must have their lights on.

I have heard two reasons:

1. It began as a way to let potential criminals notice police presence and have regular civilians feel assured that the police is there.

2. If you are stopped by a cop at night and they have their light on, you can claim it was entrapment.
