Iszael: And besides, it's fun to flash your headlights at people when there's no cops around.  It takes them a minute or two to even get pissed at you, and by then you're long gone.

KidKorporate: ZackDanger: grumpyoldmann: A Maryland Trooper once said "whatever slows drivers down" is okay with him.


The only thing to consider is that the police may also be camped out looking for an Amber Alert vehicle (or something), and by flashing your headlights you're giving the kidnapper a chance to turn around or take a different route.

Well maybe she shouldn't have dressed like a slut.

I know right? They laughed at me when I created a onesie thong. Who's laughing now?

Hey, I got no problem with it. Take money from morons who speed, it means you take less money from *me*.

Let's do away with speedtraps and rig every tree and building with a speeding camera! More effective.

So we're ignoring the fact that in Oregon, flashing headlights generally mean that some dumbfark going the wrong way is trying to alert you that you are going the right way?

MythDragon: TheOther: Maybe the light shooting forward pushes their car back??

well, technically....

Since it's travelling in the same direction it would be additive... however since it's the speed of light, and nothing can travel faster than the speed of light, then it would only travel that fast.

/or maybe the car is travelling at the speed of light.
//depends on the reference frame I suppose
//relativity is fun
