Blue/red flashing lights used for different purposes

QUESTION: About 50 feet in from Ferrari and Stetson Hills Boulevard there’s a pole with flashing blue and red lights. What is this for?
- Rick Jacobs

ANSWER: It could be one of several things. In areas with new construction, security cameras are frequently installed by the developers.

The lights may also be for traffic control. They are usually in areas prone to accidents and are used to alert drivers to slow down. A driver who sees the lights flashing blue and red is going 10 mph or more over the recommended speed. Some of the flashers are near dangerous curves where speeding drivers had ended up in front yards.
