That resonance can give you a headache after a while. It's supposed to be a total rebuild so it will be concrete.

Minnesota law provides:

169.64, subd. 3. Flashing lights. Flashing lights are prohibited, except on an authorized emergency vehicle, school bus, bicycle as provided in section 169.222, subdivision 6, road maintenance equipment, tow truck or towing vehicle, service vehicle, farm tractor, self-propelled farm equipment, rural mail carrier vehicle, funeral home vehicle, or on any vehicle as a means of indicating a right or left turn, or the presence of a vehicular traffic hazard requiring unusual care in approaching, overtaking, or passing.

I checked Wisconsin statutes for comparison:

347.26(11). Flashing warning lamps.
(a) Any vehicle may be equipped with lamps which may be used for the purpose of warning the operators of other vehicles of the presence of a vehicular traffic hazard requiring the exercise of unusual care in approaching, overtaking or passing, and when so equipped may display such warning in addition to any other warning signals required by this section. The lamps used to display such warning to the front shall be mounted at the same level and as widely spaced laterally as practicable, and shall display simultaneously flashing white or amber lights, or any shade of color between white and amber. The lamps used to display such warning to the rear shall be mounted at the same level and as widely spaced laterally as practicable, and shall show simultaneously flashing amber or red lights, or any shade of color between amber and red. These warning lights shall be visible from a distance of not less than 500 feet under normal atmospheric conditions at night.


What you do find are restrictions with respect to the color of the lights (other than amber or white to the front and amber or red to the back) and with circular rotation flashing lights and similar items. Generally lights that are all-around red or that use blue or yellow flashing lights, or alternating lights that do not flash simultaneously, are typically reserved to official vehicles and special service vehicles such as tow trucks.

For as long as I've been driving, trucks, RVs and other vehicles that are driving particular slowly (such as uphill in a truck lane) will always display 4-way flashers. I would want to know if a vehicle ahead of me was traveling much lower than the posted speed limit, in sufficient time to adjust my speed or change lanes, and I certainly don't want anybody running into me from the back!

Just came down it last weekend. Most of it appears to be asphalt. Concrete seems to be just around Janesville.

MN ... We have to watch out for that law which says you may not drive a red truck on Lake Street in Minneapolis. For real, that law exists, has been on the books for probably over a century. Then again ... there aren't so many camp sites in Uptown.
