Are they illegal?
The reason I ask is on the Fourth of July I took my family out in the boat to go watch the fireworks at Mandeville tip in the delta. Well there were about 5,000 boats out there. When the fireworks ended around 11:00 pm I turned on my tower lights and started heading back. When I was entering Franks tract a water sheriff turned on his lights and siren and pulled along side of me opened his window and started yelling rudely, “Turn off your tower lights, They’re illegal” So I yelled back, “No, I’m not turning them off and endangering the lives of my family with all these boats around. Don't be a jackass. I need them to find my way back” After that he just slammed his window shut and sped off, and I continued with them on.
So are they illegal or not? And if they are why do they sell them?
