Maybe its off-topic, but the lightbars switching from red on the driver's side to blue and back again - like the license plate on the Cadillac... But I always thought that the red side of the lightbar has to be on the driver's side. Can everyone help me with that?
And here is the scene where you can see the strange lightbars:

Note: It's the same chase...

As far as I know, red lights on the left side are customary, but not required by any sort of rule or regulation. It may come from maritime and aviation navigation lights which require a red light on the port/left side, and a green light on the right/starboard side. Some police departments may choose to put blue on the left, or a more unique lightbar pattern. For example, the St. Louis County Police Department has blue on the left. I don't know if it's that way because of some study on the visibility of red and blue light, or because they wanted to be different than the Highway Patrol and municipal police departments.

As APS221 noted, red is the norm, particularly here in California. However, you will see some rare exceptions. I once recall seeing an LAPD unit equipped with an MX-7000 lightbar with the lenses on the driver's side being blue. It was in a pack of about 20 other LAPD cars, the rest all having the standard red driver's side lenses.

Okay, so it's an exception. Good to know...
