Default OT legality of strobe lights on vehicles, plus rough ride

I bought this pickup last fall, from a nearby municipality, it has
only 35k miles on it despite baing 15 years old. They did not use it
much.

1) about yellow strobe lights. Is it legal for a regular person to
have these lights (when they are turned off)? What about driving with
them turned on? I would presume that it is illegal. I am in IL.

2) It is a 1 ton truck and it bounces a lot, like on speedbumps and
such. Is it simply due to having strong suspension (it is a 1 ton
model), or is something wrong with it?

thanks

check on the specifics with your local vol fire department. or even a full
time one. here in GA there is a form to fill out where you have to provide
your valid reason for wanting them. then it goes through an approval process
and you get a permit (if granted). keep in mind there are laws/rules that
apply and you would need to research those also.

I've always thought anti-collision strobes, appropriately shielded to
avoid blinding other drivers, would be a good idea.

A lot of school buses here in Ohio have them mounted on top of the roof
at the rear. I notice the flashing and slow down long before I actually
see the buses, especially in reduced visibility.

Aircraft have them and they have a lot more room to maneuver than auto
drivers.

Anybody have any thoughts about these and/or the turn signals in the
middle of trailers on 18-wheelers? Personally, I don't see how it could
hurt.
