an escort vehicle
a Revenue and Customs vehicle

no, you have fog lights for that purpose, please don't leave them on all the time.

Good job it is illegal on private cars ! can you imagine what it would be like on a dark wet evening on a motorway with thousands of drivers with powerful rotating flashing amber lights on the roofs, chaos!
not on a broken down car on a road?
