No If they are speeding I think they deserve to pay the penalty.

yes, but I also do it to warn of deer near the highway. It will cause MO HP to ticket you if they think you're warning other drivers...so you need to be out of their sight when you do it.

No, and radar is rarely used in California. It might even still be illegal, not sure.

I never knew that radar was illegal anywhere.....sure not in Canada.......

I agree with WilhamClouse that probably many new motorists might not know why I am flashing my lights at them.................

Yes - Especially in the known speed traps in the area. I hate to see visitors to the area get burned.

A trick we use do when flashing your headlights to warn other drivers that radar was a ahead was put your brakes light on a the same time as you flash your headlights that way no one see you put your headlight on to warn other drivers....it work for us over the years.....
