Heh... I used to have an '82 Olds Cutlass Supreme that I had set up for long-distance driving -- ah, here it is: http://www.442.com/vcs/1973_pres/andy.html
-- built-in cellphone, radar detector, etc., and added a set of electronic headlight flashers as well, the kind that blink the high beams right/left/right/left/etc. I used them to flush out left-lane bandits, those nitwits that sit in the passing lane and force everyone else to go past them on the right. Great fun. Of course, if you go making like a cop, or actually trying to pull people over, you deserve whatever you get.
In the eight years that I had the car, I came upon a few traffic accidents and other roadside emergencies, and the blinkers were useful there, too. Actually it'* amazing how many genuine rescue personnel, EMTs and undercover cops are lurking out there in personal cars (not just unmarked police cars) that have all these hidden emergency lights installed. I remember seeing a car accident shortly after it happened, and the first guy who'd arrived on-scene was driving some scuzzy, dented 8-year-old Grand Am with headlight flashers on it... looked like his personal off-duty ride.
