    Does anyone ever use a yellow strobe light on the roof of your truck for safety when you're working along a busy road?. Also, do you use a yellow/orange cone too?.

    It could never hurt to have, They are not that expensive. I do not have a light, but do have cones. Don't really use them unless its a busy road.

    We put the cones out behind the trailer at all times when we are stopped.
