Jackson126 says " Most of the time unless they are driving a BMW "

Jackson126, I know what you mean and have felt the same about expensive vehicles going over the limit.....they get no help from me......

I figure they don't need a break from a ticket and they can afford paying for being over the speed limit....

I have found many expensive vehicle drivers think they owe the roads already.....this I find every day in driving......

rando991 says " In some states it's illegal, but was recently challenged and the state lost, because how can you determine a person's intent when they flashed their lights. I do this to warn drivers of deer near the sides of the road all the time. I would fight that ticket in court if they tried to ticket me."

I agree with you rando991....I think it can be challenged in court......

No. If they are speeding, they are a danger to other drivers and should be caught.

NO, but I will if there are large wildlife on the road behind me. We have elk here probably 800 - 1200 lbs and lots of them.

The deer are much smaller
