Now before some of you get a big smile and start clicking on profile pictures.......calm down and restrain yourselves....lol Was just wondering how many fellow bikers/ or if you are in the car use the traditional flashing of the head lights to warn oncoming drivers of a speed trap ahead...... Seems not very many people warn each other these days?.. .....so what about you?

...the traditional flashing of the head lights to warn oncoming drivers of a speed trap ahead...... It may be 'traditional' but it aint in the highway code. To flash the headlights means you are 'indicating your presence'.

I go the whole hog and aim to 'indicate their presence' .. I flash my lights, roll down the window and utilise my hand signals as best I can by doing a 'slow down' signal to the on coming traffic and point repeatedly in the direction of the hiding in the bush!

I really dislike camera vans,I think one got me this week.....
Still at least one didn't as I got a flash from an oncoming car to warn me,so flashing works!

If I see a camera van and have half an hour to kill I park 100 yards away from it and let people know its there-it annoys the van operator and makes me happy for a while,easily pleased I know!

I think my meaning was misunderstood, I wasn't on about speed traps. I meant that in the highway code it states that a driver uses their headlights to indicate their presence on the road. The headlights shouldn't be flashed for any other reason is what I was trying to convey.

I flash other people (if i like the look of them). If its some d**khead boy racer them stuff em. But word of warning police are starting to enforce no flashing. They now sometimes have a car sat about 50-100 yards away if anyone flashes they stop them and charge them with 'obstructing an officer in the line of their duty'.

Yes, I saw an item on a local news programme re what you've just said about obstruction OMNF........

just think, all those cops hung around waiting to catch a 'possible criminal', and all those cops that are no where in sight when real crime needs dealing with!!!!

But officer I thought you were about to pull out so I flashed my lights to warn you of an approaching vehicle
