It consists of a plastic housing, one red, green and yellow light, and an electric cord. In operation, the red and yellow lights flash in sequence while the green light remains constant.

The applicable subheading for the “Flashing Traffic Light” will be 8543.89.9695, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other electrical machines and apparatus, , not specified or included elsewhere in Chapter 85, HTS.
