Purpose of flashing light bar?

Bought a used B2300 and the guy gave me a light bar with it. It has 4 settings, slow flashing one way, railroad crossing, slow flashing the other way, and something else. The only settings are the movement and the light is never just on without doing things like that, as it's meant to. My question is what is the point of this flashing strobe light bar? What purpose does it serve? I doubt I'll even install it if all it does is flash.

No it was a farm truck and then a city dweller owned it so its not that. But maybe that's what the intended purpose of the bar is.

Nah the guy was 17 and not affiliated with any emergency services like that. I'm assuming he found it, bought it, and didn't realize it was something like that.

Damn, not very useful to me then. Guess I'll get rid of it as I can't see me ever using this.

Well I don't see any wizards so it doesn't work right then. I did see a minotaur but I think it's unrelated.
