A Road Flare is a light which can be used to Illuminate a small area for about 10 minutes in real life time (exactly 10 hours in-game). When used, it is dropped and released lit red smoke. It can be used as bait or to help someone find a teammate.

It is not advised to use one if you are in a major city or a landmark, because other players, and especially Bandits can find you very easy, and you never know if it'll be a friendly Survivor or Hero, or a blood-thirsty Bandit that finds you first.
