I have a Honda scooter. It has full street legal lights now, but in the interest of safety, I'd like to add blinking lights in the hopes that I can be seen better by other motorists.
I'm thinking of having 4 high brightness red LEDs rear facing and one red to each side at the rear. The front would have the same setup but using amber color. I think 1 second binks .25 sec in duration would attract attention. I would use a 555 tiner IC.
Questions: Would this setup be legal in most states (I'm in Ohio)? Do you think duration and duty cycle is good?
