Stymied by the Traffic Cone Blinky Thing

Stymied by the Traffic Cone Blinky Thing

Help me Internet!

You see the two orange sawhorse road construction thingies in the photo above?

What the hell are they called?

Stimulus money is apparently flowing through my town because there’s a wealth of infrastructure and road repair going on right now and for weeks JD has been obsessed with the traffic cones and whatchamacallit barriers dotting our roads. We can’t pass one by without her asking me twelve times, “what are the orange things called?”

For the first time, I can’t for the life of me come up with an answer. I can’t even fake it. The best we’ve been able to come up with is “traffic cone blinkie thing,” which JD came up with. It’s been bugging me for days.

Help me out here–what do you call them?
