Maybe they don't have overhead blinkers in states that begin with O,
but around here there are a couple two- or four-way stops with
single-ball signals suspended from wires. The approaches that stop
have a permanently blinking red, and the others have a yellow. These
are useful to mark for navigation if nothing else.
Here's an example (four-way stop so they're all red):
