Can you make the traffic lights turn green?

Yes, the Fire Department Apparatus has lights that emit a particular frequency of flashing light that activates a control on the traffic lights to cause them to change to green in the direction of travel. They are called Options. You may see us occasionally driving around checking them by driving through intersections with only one flashing white light.
