First time someone did that to me I didn't even see them. I was riding over Rock Eagle with my mom in the car and she said "Why did that car flash it's lights at us? Are your lights on?" I checked my lights and immediately said "It means COP!" Sure enough, 15 second later a HP was on the side of the road.

My mom asked how I knew that meant and when I replied I just did she muttered "Must be a penis thing and looked down at her book."

Every-time someone flashes their headlights at me I flash my lights back at them, pull out my '9' and get ready to return fire.

Flash those puppies!


In NJ ca1968 the Garden State Parkway went past a drive-in theater that started to show XXX* movies on a screen facing the highway. Let's just say that caused an accident or two.

If I remember correctly it was on the east side just before the big bridge by the sulfur factory or around the poltergeist highway section.

*XXX meaning x-rated, meaning pron.
**a drive-in was a type of movie theater in which you sat in your car to watch a large projection
***southside of the river was a match factory
****the section is where there is cemetery on both sides of the highway but none under of course.

/frickin kids have no idea what i'm talking about :p

so do you flash them on or off at night? Was driving late one night, and passed a cop, then went around a corner and up a hill. Cop was perfectly positioned right at the bottom of the hill, around a bend so anyone driving down would never know until it was too late. Flashed my hi beams, and I'm sure they got the message, because the driver had to stop to regain his vision after I flashed him my brights. Felt like an ass, and I still do, thinking about it now. Prevented a ticket, though.

CSB: Massive ticket for speeding was once given out by a cop who caught me flying through Pennsylvania. State trooper was sitting on a bend in the road looking for people going the other way, and I came around the (incredibly long) corner and just glimpsed him before moving behind a truck(passing on the right). Truck and I were moving closer to the same speed, though I was still in the 90s, after I finished passing him, but at that point I had a little eye to eye moment with the trooper, who was looking at me with his mouth wide open. I was caught, and I knew it. Trooper finally got his radar gun up on me, and I reluctantly pulled over, giving in to the inevitable.
After he caught up with me, the first words out of his mouth were, "Man, you are lucky that truck came along, otherwise you'd be looking at jail time. Do you know how fast you were going?"
I may have a lead foot, but I am not that dense; trying to get me to further incriminate myself? Ah, no: "Too fast?"

/he starts laughing, "Good answer." but I get the ticket anyway
//$157; 97mph in a 65mph(?)

I flash my headlights to warn people of potential hazards ahead.

Typically you will see cars slam on their brakes whenever they see a police officer. It is important to warn cars that the traffic patterns may be different further down the road.

It's for safety.

machoprogrammer: Flakeloaf: We had a word for the act of catching someone in a "speed trap" while hiding. We called it "poaching", and it was generally regarded as stupid, unnecessary and self-defeating. You want people to drive more safely, not to hand out tickets. If someone's going to break the law, they'll do it anyway and you won't need to hide to see them.

That is adorable... You act like cops aren't just revenue generators for most cities.


I wasn't.

kimwim: I never flash lights to warn drivers. If they're driving fast enough to encourage a cop to put down the coffee and donut, I say have at him. The life you save may be your kid's.


Ditto.

I flash my lights all the time when the asshole in the oncoming traffic has his high beams on, though. Or those farking painful blue headlights that destroy the vision of anybody who looks at them (blinding everyone else: great way to increase safety, jackass) because they're indistinguishable from high beams when you're trying to squint through them to see the road.

And I only flash my lights at them because shooting them out with a pellet gun is illegal (but would make the road safer for everyone else).
