Peel's are bright like that. I hate our new lights. From a distance, it just looks like some brake lights activated. Not eye catching at all.

Cause they changed it from "strobing" to the stupid on off, on off. Looks retarded. And they removed the flashing reverse/tail lights which pissed me off.

I am very pro lightage!

Ours are like that on the crown vics we are currently running. Absolutely awful when it comes to alerting people that it's a cruiser.

Yep. Except at about the 15 second mark, where the cruiser makes the turn under the overpass, and the whole row blink on and off in unison.....ours don't even do that. They literally (like Stinger says) just flash on and off. At a distance, the red lights don't look any different than brake lights. It's no wonder we get people slamming into us from behind at traffic stops.

That is crappy....they didn't used to be like that though did they? I can recall seeing OPP cars with a much faster flash pattern.

Nope, they just switched to that a while ago. They used to be far better. Part of the reason I drive an unmarked car is that I think they are better lit up than the marked units we have.

The OPPs unmarked units are done up quite nicely.

I wonder what the reasoning is to switching to such a poor flash pattern.

It might be the installer just put them on and didn't test the pattern to see how it goes. When I had the lights installed on the cruisers, I sat there and went through the patterns to make sure they were a good sequence.

It's quite a simple correction to make....just need to play with the control module a wee bit.

No it isn't an installers mistake. I believe they did it because they were too bright and people were being blinded by them. Like meathead, I drive the unmarked because you can see it so much better.
