I Love Flashing Truckers!

Had half a day at work today & on my way home, I was feeling extra friendly..........

 

 

 

So, when I saw a state trooper radaring for speeders, I was sure to flash my lights at oncoming truckers to warn them. 

 

Truckers seem so damn appreciative! :) They all would wave & smile.  The oncoming car drivers seemed to not be quite as friendly. :-P  Pffft.  I'm only flashing truckers from now on!

bahahaa! I kid.  I kid.

 

But, heyyy.....  serious question.  Is it illegal to flash vehicles & warn them of a cop?  LOL!  i've always wondered this.....

 

*shrugs* whooo cares?  i'm a rebel.  :-P

No ideas if it's illegal. . It shouldn't be.

Who knows? And to be honest, I wouldn't have a clue why someone was flashing their brights at me. Lol

Yea. it's illegal. And a very bad idea. That cop may be sitting there looking for a specific vehicle and you warning may tell that vehicle to turn around. No big deal, right? Yea, not until your kid is in the trunk of the vehicle you warned about the cop.

It's not illegal, but it is frowned upon (to my knowledge). I would never let anyone know there is a cop ahead; if they get pulled over for doing something wrong, they deserve it.

Yes it is illegal. You can be stopped if they see you.
