Post news RSS UPDATE NOW LIVE - Police Computer and Database Search

A game changing update has just hit Flashing Lights.

Posted by on

Hello all,

A much requested feature has arrived in Flashing Lights! You are now able to use the in-car police computer in order to scan car licence plates. With information on whether or not the driver has any traffic violations, parking tickets, an arrest history or warrant, you can make informed decisions on your course of action.

Also included is details on the car's insurance, and registration. Scan the licence plate of a stolen vehicle and the driver may even evade traffic stops and flee.

26 July 2019 Full Patch Notes


  • Police vehicle computer system reworked(English only for now)
  • Database search for pedestrians and drivers
  • Use Left Shift to turn on computer, on/off interaction cursor and lock controls/camera movements
  • Use scroll wheel for computer screen size or camera zoom for first person view
  • More details on NPC profiles added - birth date, driving license status, warrant, wanted or not wanted, citation history, arrest history
