Official Ruling Regarding Flash Rates for Traffic Control Signals and Beacons
Some agencies have been exploring novel flash patterns that result in a variable flash rate (combination of several rates). These patterns do not comply with the MUTCD and would require experimentation if pursued.
You can contact the FHWA Traffic Control Devices Team Leader, Kevin J. Sylvester, with additional questions. Email: Kevin.Sylvester@dot.gov. The current MUTCD can be found here: MUTCD Online.
