Posted:Kosmic, tell me more about your spin. We're up to our ears in road flares in NYC. Don't they stink? They last forever no? How did they react to spinning? How did you attatch them?Right now it is our main defense against terrorism attacks. Most of our main roadways are all narrowed down to one lane (with lots of road flares) so that any suspicious vehicles can be searched. Unfortunately, at the checkpoints are just groups of Cops talking with eachother. I guess they figure that any terrorists will either be to frustrated by the traffic or scared away by the flares.

Posted:Well there not that much maybe 3-10 dollars, but u have to make sure to get the good ones cause some of them tend to shoot some of there insides out when spun fast, so be sure to get good quality ones. Where u hold the flare (there should be some kind of line marking where to hold) I just drilled a hole in the that part. Im triing to figure out a better way to rig them up though.Good luck(not positive on the cost)Peace
