I know when I see Amber flashing lights I try to move to the left lane. In some states it is the law but it always should be a courtesy if possible.

So I got to thinking about adding some Amber flashing lights to my RV. I did some research and came up with this... Fox Trot LED Dash Light | Deck & Visor Lights | Extreme Tactical Dynamics

I got mine today and am pretty impressed with it. It has a plug to plug into a cigarette lighter and suction cups so I can stick it on the side of my RV. It has 26 different flashing patterns and is bright. I bought an alligator to cigarette lighter adapter so I can connect it to the battery in my RV or just plug into the TV if I have a problem with it. Hopefully it will get some drivers attention and they will give a courtesy pass if I'm disabled along the side of the road. Check it out, plus it is on sale now..

PS.. Don't buy red or blue as those are for police or emergency vehicles..
Hope it comes with amber lens. Red and Blue are restricted to certain emergency vehicles and police.

In Arizona, the law says to move left or slow down for ANY vehicle pulled off the side of the road with their flashers on. Sadly, they don't post it very often, and the majority of freeways here are in remote areas. Also, too many people pull over and do not engage their emergency flashers. We always pull over if we can do so safely, flashing lights or not.

I have been a law enforcement officer for almost 20 years now. First, state statutes vary from state to state regarding flashing lights & colors allowed. Second, at least in my opinion, safety is paramount. If someone is on the side of the road at night and utilizing flashing amber light(s) in conjunction with red flashing hazard brake lights, the thought of citing them would not cross my mind. Just my 2 cents.
