Your most important responsibility as a Skywarn Spotter is
safety- your safety and the safety of others. Participation in the
Skywarn Program does not grant you any special authority or privilege.
In other words, you may not violate any traffic law or operate your vehicle in
an unsafe manner. You have no authority to place your vehicle in a location
that impedes the flow of traffic. The use of any emergency lighting with
the exception of factory installed four-way blinkers is not acceptable.
