Modulating Headlights on a Truck

I'm not sure if the headlights are actually blinking or if it's just an optical illusion.

That's just the frame rate on your camera. There's a very high chance that truck has LEDs, or maybe HIDs but I'm not sure what the refresh rate is on HIDs. BTW the DRL on the Benz next to the truck is also blinking so that's how you know it's your camera.

I see it was a nice day to take the PCH.

LED's will do this even without video gear, easiest to notice on LED rear brake lights. Look at the lights then quickly look away and you will see them blinking, because they are blinking... just very fast!
