HonorYourOath’s Speed Trap Crasher!

This post comes to us from HonorYourOath. I just love this guy and his proactive education – both of non-police and police alike. His comment in the video below “I’ve got one” made me LOL:) -Pete

For years in the state of Florida LEO’s have been ticketing motorist who warn others of speed traps by flashing their high beams. This is despite the fact that flashing high beams to warn of speed traps is not illegal.

A judge even issued a court order back in 2005 telling the Florida Highway Patrol to stop ticketing motorist for flashing high beams to warn of speed traps because it is a form of communication,thus it is an activity protected by the first amendment.

Despite and in defiance of the court order FHP records show that over 10,000 citizens have been illegally cited for flashing their highbeams since 2005. As a result of this illegal behavior there is a class action lawsuit against the FHP,and other law enforcement agencies.


Apparently the word has gotten out to LEO”S to stop illegally ticketing motorist for flashing their highbeams. Not taking the word of law enforcement P.R.O.’s I decided to go see if LEO’s are still engaging in this illegal behavior for myself in what I call SPEED TRAP CRASHER!

I was stopped by Officer Valerio of the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office. At first contact Officer Valerio is quick on his feet and does fine. However, when Officer Valerio returns after running my ID, things get a little sketchy.
