Who thought you could improve on a light? Well it was not that long ago that they started putting LEDs into tail lights of cars to improve visibility and endurance. Now they saying that a flashing light attracts more attention than a solid one.  Hmmmmm... I guess that makes pretty good sense. Man those scientists are brilliant!

Problem is that here in the US flashing lights are reserved for emergency vehicles. At the beginning of this year, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)  granted permission to Mercedes-Benz by giving them a temporary exemption from U.S. automobile safety standards, allowing it to sell as many as 5,000 vehicles over the next two years that include brake lights that flash during emergency stops.

So that means if you can afford one of the 5,000 you could be saved from a violent life threatening crash. If not then you are just out of luck.
