Earlier this week, as I drove west across Sandusky city limits along U.S. 6, the area where the speed limit suddenly drops to 35 mph, a truck in the opposite lane flashed its headlights.
Sure enough, a Sandusky Police Department car was parked alongside Cleveland Road, apparently watching for speeders.
Flashing your headlights may be a form of speech protected by the First Amendment.
That's what a judge in Florida says. He ruled that a Florida man who flashed his lights to warn about a sheriff deputy's speed trap was engaged in free speech protected by the U.S. Constitution.
