Well, I put my new amber roof lighting to good use right away. Ended up on traffic control duty with the Silverado at about 12:30 this morning. Came up on a deer that someone hit and ran. Deer was completely in the other lane, and car shrapnel was all over my lane. Stopped just in time to flash a truck in the other direction before he hit it. Turned out to be a local fire volunteer. He had no cell service, but I have a powered cell booster and I got through. So I called it in, and listened in to dispatch on my 2m radio. We had my amber roof lights and flashers, the volunteer had blues on his truck, we staged across the road from each other to try and warn traffic. Most people were good and slowed down, but some idiots just blasted through..running over bits of car parts in the process
Took them 20 minutes to get the PD off their last stop and out to us. They dispatched the poor deer and we cleaned up the road. At least they were very thankful to us for our help.
I think this will be the 4th time this winter I've stayed with a deer in the road to help the understaffed PD with keeping other people from getting in an accident. So many hit and runs. I'm glad I can help, but at the same time, I hope its good karma and I wont hit one myself.
