Emergency vehicles have a different set of regulations. Examples can be seen here and here. Remember too that many emergency vehicles do not fall under the FMVSS.Over the next years, you will see even more lighting added to emergency vehicles and greater use of traffic light preemption based on studies such as this one.

In general, flashing lights are reserved for emergency vehicles.

I agree that those devices are a safety hazard.

I bought my 4Runner out of state (because I wanted a blue Pro and no local dealers would budge on price) and one of the dealers I didn't buy from would have had a sale were it not for the back-and-forth they made me go through to get them to agree to remove it prior to delivery... I ended up actually going another whole state over and buying from a dealership that didn't do any of that kind of crap in the first place.
