Sweden's police cars get a completely new color during emergency operations

Motorists on Swedish roads now have to get used to a completely new color in the emergency flashers of police cars. Initially, it will be implemented on all uniformed carriages.

Here at home, it lights up blue when the police come storming in with an emergency call. But in Sweden, drivers have to get used to a completely different color.

Because while motorists in Sweden have lived with the fact that the country's police cars can flash both red and blue since the 1990s, the law enforcement authorities are now introducing a third color in the cars' emergency flashers.

This is written by Sveriges Radio.

However, the orange light is not just for the officers in the cars to show off. It is simply easier to see in daylight, according to law enforcement.

– We have seen that orange light tends to be seen better during the day than blue light. We can therefore combine orange and blue lights to better catch people's attention when we need a clear lane, says traffic officer Björn Thunblad to Vi Bilägare .

However, the police in Sweden do not expect drivers to understand the purpose of the orange light right away. That is why law enforcement also leaves the stall block in their pocket if motorists get confused.

In Sweden, it otherwise costs a fine of 3,000 kroner, corresponding to 1,950 Danish kroner, to not respect and stop for the blue and red lights. The orange, on the other hand, should be seen as a kind of guide, and therefore not punishable to misunderstand it, say the police.

At the colleagues in Denmark, as far as is known, there are no plans to introduce orange emergency flashing lights. But on the other hand, it completely determines which patrol cars the National Police can allocate to the country's 12 geographical police districts for the next 7 years. Read more about it here .
