Beware of doing the flashing lights thing.  The gendarmerie takes 
umbrage about people doing that.  And some states have laws they can 
invoke, under the guise of "illegal flashing lights" as opposed to 
flashing OF lights, or aiding/abetting.  Not friendly, at all.
It's rather like the Bible - they can come up with a passage that will 
cover anything.
