Regular "running lights" will possibly cause an issue too. It indicates you can "maneuver" to avoid certain circumstances, meaning powered and then "right of way" comes into play. I personally wouldn't use a flashing light either. That's me. It means distress or at least the perception of distress. Good all around white light, lots of SOL tape and a very bright back up torch/light of some sort to wave or signal if someone gets too close. Stay safe out there guys.
