Kevin,

We knew you should have been committed long ago. The ominous gleam
wasn't coming from LEDs. 8-) Don't forget to increase the insurance
on Red Dwarf to cover the electronic countermeasures.

To those looking for a funkier light show, keep in mind that LEOs
don't always take kindly to creativity on the road. Colors other
than white, amber and red may cause undue interest. Blue, in
particular, is to be avoided if you aren't in the public safety
business. Any pattern that a skilled operator couldn't produce is
also suspect. An exponentially decaying brake flash should be
acceptable. T-bird turn signals seem to be okay. Anything that does
a wig-wag or side-to-side flash may be confused with an emergency
vehicle and may net you another citation to put on the refrigerator
with all the gold stars from kindergarten. Makes mom proud, eh?
