I don't know if this is coast guard or police vehicles ?
I think I see the words "Guardia di Finanza" or some such on the back of a hatchback there - some Italian government police thing.

Hong Kong has similar laws to Britain and was British territory until 1997. Number plates are therefore very similar as well as police vehicles and markings. Also, road markings are more or less the same. Know your background before you say things like that.
Lol get over yourself! I wasn't exactly singling Hong Kong, I was talking in broader terms. New Zealand, Hong Kong, Europe..

Royal Marechausse/Gendarmerie


Unmarked Marechausee motor is used for traffic. Notice the integrated red led-lichts in the tank near the BMW logo.
There are three text-lines, 'STOP', 'POLICE' and 'FOLLOW'.

^^ The video description:

Dreamnight is organized by the emergency services in The Netherlands. The goal is to let sick children and mentally disabled kids have a wonderful day and to forget that they're sick for one day, the children are picked up by hospitals with ambulances, fire engines and police cars. Then they're being brought to the zoo of Amsterdam (Artis) so they can be happy for just one day and forget that they're very sick and probably are going to die young.. It's very sad but because the children have to suffer each day of their disease they deserve one day of happiness, after a day in the zoo they're going to drive the rest of the night in the city of Amsterdam with sirens en lights. The goal of dreamnight is to make the children forget one day that they're having a disease.

I found a video with not only the police, but also firetrucks and ambulances.
I hope it’s not a problem :)


The Emergency vehicles are very well in comparishing with spain but the sirens i do´t like the typical european gay siren "niii noooo niii nooo"" , so I prefer the belgian, english spain or american tones of this

Romanian tones:

Police:


Ambulance (they still use sometimes the European "tuu-taa" siren):


Firefighters (I tried to find a decent clip with a romanian firetruck in action, but I found just this one with 3 old and rusty trucks each one having a different tone):
