Coroner not to use blue lights

October 30, 2006

Albany - Dougherty County Commissioners put a red light on blue lights for the coroner.   Coroner Emma Quimbley wants to use blue lights when she drives to death calls. Problem is, that's against the law.  

Quimbley applied to the Department of Public Safety for a permit, but was told no.   They did give her a RED light permit, but told her she'd have to have county approval for a BLUE light permit. The county says no, though, because insurance probably wouldn't cover her if she wrecked with a blue light.
