Wow there sure are a lot of people on their high horse here. Get over it, s/he was trying to help out another driver. Lots do it, and most appreciate it. I love how people here act as if they are the epitome of perfection and can do no wrong. "omg u flashed ur brites. ur a bad persun. ttly ydi!!!1" Get over yourselves. Why do people always feel the need to bash on OPs? They're sharing their misfortune to brighten our days.

Yeah, I remember semi drivers used to do this. It was great, cuz I am not a fan of distance driving. I end up driving 90 - 100 in a 70 because I'm that impatient. They made it illegal to warn other drivers. At least in my area.

aha cause that's not going to end badly. maybe while speeding you should have flipped him off drank some beer and thrown your trash at his car. but if course after we sped off he wouldn't do anything...

It is technically against the law, but very very easy to beat! Especially with the high beams as opposed to just turning your lights on and off! Tell the judge you hit a bump in the road and your shocks are going bad! Looks almost exactly the same and the cop won't be able to say otherwise!

While police insist it is obstruction of justice, this went to quite a few state Supreme Courts before, and they all ruled otherwise. Legally, this charge will not stand in court, but you may get a ticket for it anyway

Right #3, you know where the OP lives, so you can comment on the legality of such an action. Either way, it's a dumbass move. Anyone who has been driving for longer than a month knows what a stupid, stupid move it is to flash your lights to warn others of an approaching cop car. The OP is lucky his/her car didn't get torn apart in a search and they weren't inconvenienced for hours on end because of a power tripping cop with a bug up his ass.
