You don't want to use something that might look like you are a cop or a fireman.

You probably don't want to use a flashing light that is meant to be pointed forward (people can't tell what direction you are going).

I wouldn't use these in place of a legal rear light (which probably has to be red).

Beyond that, I doubt anybody will care.
