The flashing light is warning you that something is going wrong inside your engine, or steering system, or brakes, or anything else. It can not be safe to drive with any signal light flashing (except, obviously, left and right). You have to bring in your car for a check up as soon as possible.
Flashing means that the car is misfiring. Driving it like that could damage the catalytic converter.

A flashing red traffic light is used the same way as a stop sign. You treat a flashing red traffic light the same way you do as a stop sign. If the traffic light is "blacked-out", it's to be treated as an all-way stop. What I do when I come up to a flashing red traffic light, I look at the cross-traffic signals to see if they're also flashing red, or if they're flashing yellow to see if they stop or if they don't stop.
You should not be driving if unable to distinguish yellow from red. If uncertain- treat as red.
when the glow plug light is flashing during driving it is not the plugs that need replaced it normally means you have a bulb blown most commonly one of your sidelights and once replaced your glow plug light will stop flashing

I have the same thing with my 220Gsi.. It seems it has nothing to do with the handbrake though. I suspect it has to do with the level of your steering fluid. I will check it out and let you know later this week
