Motors can cause

a pretty good voltage drop, especially if you have a less than great connection in a circuit or a circuit that's loaded pretty good. When the motor kicks in, the momentary drop in voltage is enough for the light to "quench". It takes a little bit for the element to cool enough for the mercury to condense enough to reestablish the electrical connection in the element. As lamps get older (especially High Pressure Sodium) they leak the compounds in the light element that form the ionizing/fluorescing gases and become more and more prone to "blinking". Luck, Kizmet
