    In the UK usually pulled over by the rozzers and a hefty fine! LOL

    Only emergency vehicles are allowed any modulated/flashing light (other than indicators)

    Although, when filtering I have been known to develop a strange twitch with the finger on my left hand that operates the 'pass' flash! :008: :008:

    They are legal here and I think aid in visibility but am worried about the effects on electrical system.

    Find out anything???   I have a Kisan modulator I'd like to install, the sort that just plugs into the headlight bulbs... no wiring required....

    I'm sure you have seen them. They flash ( modulate ) the headlight to aid in being seen by others.

    Oh yes. Sure I've seen them. Didn't know it was referred to as modulating.  Thanks for the explanation

    As CB rightly says they are not aloud in the UK  :087: The only flashing lights  whilst on the move are the indicators.
    Even the hazards should only be used whilst stationary :087: :087:
