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.................
