    We do have sensors on our traffic lights, but as far as I knew they detect IR light. I also thought they used a specific frequency, nothing like the pattern the OP wants, but as this is sort of a taboo subject here, i'll shut up;)

    I remember when I was a kid hearing stories about being able to change red lights with a timing light. I also remember the police cars in St. Paul, MN having a big square box on the roof with a forward facing white strobe light. I imagine this was the light changing mechinism of the mid 1980's?

    You could, but it makes the project more complicated.

    It's called a MIRT, they are illegal and therefore against the forum rules.

    Is this to impersonate an emergency vehicle?

    If so it's still illegal and isn't allowed to be discussed here.

    You'll need a lot of super bright LEDs to pretend you're an emergency vehicle. Why do you want such a thing anyway? What country allows this?

    no country allows this...
    like i said before my english is very very poor and i'm writing here with a translator.
    so you may not understand me.
    i ask my friend what to write here but i dont remember what he said...
    so i write roughly.
    my grandfather is in the secret police (detective, like my friend say)
    and he has a private car. The police provided him with a flasher but it was damged.
    the police has no replacment for it, and anyway he wants something nicer for his new car.
    My grandfather asked me to help him, and I'm kinda stuck with the LED's.. can anyone help me please? how can I place any xenons instead of LED's?
    for conclusion, he has premission for it, but I don't know how to do it.
    Thanks alot and have a nice day !

    Even if he has permission for it, the design would need to be approved and he'd have it supplied to him.

    In short I don't believe a word of it, you're just trying to lie to get us to help you with your illegal project.

    Alright I'll try to simply it for you.

    It is illegal to impersonate an emergency vehicle.

    If your stepfather worked for the police, they would supply him with a warning light.

    They would not want him to build his own warning light.
