I’ve been researching the legality of strobe brake lights (sometimes referred to as wig-wags). I contacted the Polk County Sheriff Department to ask and they provided the Iowa Code below. I have highlighted the section of interest. It’s ambiguous at best, but it looks like they are legal by the “letter of the law”. I’ve contacted an attorney but have not heard back. Emphasis mine.
Of particular note is the “prohibited except” and the “intent to stop” language.

I wanted to contact you and say I am far from happy about the quality of the fiberglass parts I received, order # 11184560. Specifically with the front and rear bumper (Part # 33662 and 10341 respectively).
While I expected some fitment issues since this is a 30+ year old car, I did NOT expect the multiple thin spots and bubbles just under the gel coat. This has lead to extensive body work on, what should have been, install and go parts.
Here, we have an area that was less than a 1/16th of an inch thick. An area right next to the mounting surface.
I own a Corvette beaches!
