Strobing Center Brake Light?

I got a little $7-ish box wired into my center brake light that strobes at 10 Hz for 2 seconds when activated then goes steady on. (Flashed 20 times in 2 seconds then goes solid like normal)

I've been rear ended a few times (no in the Cruze) and my side tails are tinted, so this seemed like a good idea.

BUT, I see how it might get annoying in traffic, especially after dark.

Thoughts?

It works well IMO.
I have a similar mod on the brake lights of my motorcycles and over the years I think it really is effective at waking up the folks behind you.
I'm likely going to put one on each of my Miatas (may as well be bikes....no respect).

The two/three flash versions are not annoying....just attention getting.
There are some cheeze ball ones out there that continually flash......Those are ANNOYING!

Forgot to mention....works even better if you convert the CHMSL bulbs to L.E.D. and increases the lifespan of the module.
