Flashing your lights to let other motorists know of an upcoming speed trap is practically an unwritten rule of the road.
For more than 10,429 drivers since 2005, this unwritten rule ended up in an unwanted $100 citation courtesy of the Florida Highway Patrol, according to Channel 10 News.
Eric Campbell ended up with one of those tickets. He later found out the citation might not be valid under Florida law and he’s since filed a class action lawsuit against FHP to recover the ticket costs and damages.
Have you ever received a ticket for improper flashing of your lights or high beams? If so, we’d like to hear from you. Just comment below or email editor Sherri Lonon.
