This example adds a siren for the vehicle, then sets two custom sirens at the top of the vehicle. And then removes the siren when getting out the vehicle.

addEventHandler('onPlayerVehicleEnter', root, function(vehicle, seat)
   if (seat == 0) then
      addVehicleSirens(vehicle, 2, 2)
      setVehicleSirens(vehicle, 1, -0.3, 0, 0.8, 0, 0, 255, 255, 255)
      setVehicleSirens(vehicle, 2, 0.3, 0, 0.8, 255, 0, 0, 255, 255)
      -- You can also make the sirens flash immediately with 'setVehicleSirensOn(vehicle, true)'
