Alexi7 says " All the time. They don't call Ohio State Troopers "state dicks" for nothing. "

I am glad to see some motorists are still continuing do this practice...

BTW Cooey if you are so bothered by what you see on this thread by me it might be best to stay off this thread.....let the choice be yours....

You are always welcome Cooey on this thread but please be a little more positive if you can.........thanks.....

No, I only flash them if I want to get pulled over to ask for information, pulling over with ones hazard lamps flashing works also. Maybe raise the vehicle hood also.

OP - is the point of these threads to pose a question[using poor grammar] and then respond to your own post many times?

I do not think so. Model good practice please.

Yes to help my fellow motorists if they are a few miles over the limit...

MaggieMae07 , I don't see this as a childish and potentially dangerous practice at all....never have.....

MaggieMae07 you better hope to keep speed limit always because if no one warns you than it is a ticket for you....

Remember law enforcement need to give tickets to keep up revenues for town and cities coffers.....they want you to break the law as town and cities need the money...................
