mine are amber. half the time they don't work, though, so I mainly use my hazards when I'm pulled off the road or driving really slow, looking for an animal (damn my old Chevy S-10!!)

We have full size amber lightbars and rear facing arrowsticks, however, if I have to stop in the street, and I have all my lights activated, most people just pull up behind me and stop, even on two lane roads. The hazard lights are pretty much universially known and more people seem to know what to do when a vehicle has those on as opposed to having all the other lights on. That being said, my hazard lights and arrowstick are the most used item, I rarely, and I mean rarely, use my overhead rotators.

As I recall, our state law prohibits red lights except on emergency vehicles (police and fire).

I have opted for no light bar because the top of a deerskin unit is 1/8 steel, and I can climb my fat self on top of the truck without it even flexing. A light bar would be in the way. I use it as a scaffold for getting things out of trees, putting up misting hoses for outdoor events or hanging banners on the front of the building.

Dont got Them, Get them! Even tho some people dont care what you have. They still zoom past you like your a ghost. We have to use Blue and amber. Our upper management wont allow us to use the reds. (Even tho they allow road workers to use em :/ )
