ANYWAY, on topic, your story is full of fail... sorry. "a kid"... "red strobes on his car"... "caught using them on the road
". Yes, there is no denying that using them outside of their intended purpose is illegal. Lighting your friends up being stupid playing around on the street is not pulling a vehile out of an embankment in the snow, or drawing attention to drivers that your parked on the side of the freeway helping someone change a flat tire.
Also the law posted is very clear flashing so long as they flash at the same time is perfectly fine. Its when you get the police strobes that flash left and right individually there is a problem.
For peace of mind (as a ticket for helping someone out would suck) I would print this law off and keep a copy in my owners manual so IF a cop decided he had nothing better to do you could at LEAST show him that you looked into it and it was for safety not for show unlike the aforementioned honda story.
I think this is a great idea, and knowing you its going to look AMAZING when its done!
