Did you know it was illegal?

At least here as a courtasey we flick our lights 2 times while driving, or tap our breaks twice to inform other drivers that a cop is ahead. I was taught this from my driving instructor, my parents do it, and everyone I know does it. My friend did this the other night, after I explained it to her, and was pulled over given a warning as it's supposeable illegal.

Yes here also everyone in a car should be in seat belt but people dont really like wearing when driving through certain location . I sometime stayed at a town in my country where I had to sometime drive across a bridge that as no railing , and people are always driving off the bridge no one know how deep the water is even today , it said the river have sinking sand beneath it . So if you are in your seat belt and go over no one can really save you because you might be stuck . I agree with you both safety comes first

I was pulled over the other day for flicking my lights because the person infront of me had their high beams on and was blinding me. I was lectured, and told do not do that. I was going to look the law up and see if they are just full of it aorund here or if it's true.

Oh yes, I did know that this was illegal. I have never been cited for it, but I knew that it was illegal because of the fact that one of my best friends when I was growing up had a father that was a cop and he told both Erica and I about this when we turned sixteen and were getting our driver's licenses. In fact, it is even illegal to flip your headlights at someone that doesn't have their headlights on when it is after dark. This hasn't kept me from doing it because it is nice to know to slow down if a cop is ahead. But, it also does keep cops from giving tickets to people that have knowingly been breaking the law.
