Blinker light colors:Red and Blue?

When you’re riding your bike at night, wouldn’t you want to have the best color that people would recognize the most, and that’s RED and BLUE. Just think about it for a second, if you had red and blue blinkers on your bike, you’d be seen right away by drivers, correct?

But then again, having these colored lights could spell some trouble for you. Some cities prohibit such color combinations because it resembles Police lights. Would you risk it if you ran those colors on your bike(s) that a cop wouldn’t pull you over? Perhaps these color combinations are ok in some cities, but I know for a fact that in Los Angeles, you’d get pulled over right away. It’s really a shame since these colors seem to catch people’s attention rather quickly.
