Keep in mind, it would have the same 'strobe pattern' as a police car, but would be in a bright white, instead of red and blue.
It's illegal, but only an infraction (ticket) as long as you aren't impersonating an officer. It would fall under 24003 VC - Unlawful lighting. I've been debating putting them in the rear of my car. But, I'd only use 'em if I was off-duty and came across a crash that was blocking the freeway (I really don't want to get my car hit because of some other crash).
