Almost half of UK road users confess to flashing other drivers to warn of speed checks ahead, according to a poll carried out by I AM.

I AM Chief Inquisitor Peter Rodgerer confirmed that only 21% of respondents thought drivers should be prosecuted for flashing warnings to other road users.

Not that this helped the motorist who was fined £175, plus £250 costs last month, for speed flashing, according to Fleet News.

The most promising mitigation, should you get nabbed speed flashing, is apparently to claim you were attempting to avert the dangers associated with unwarned drivers decelerating suddenly.

Worth a try, Bankstone News supposes.


    What our clients say about us

    Jo was friendly while still professional. She answered any questions and was patient and happy to help. Next steps and cover confirmation could have been a bit clearer. I've had calls from credit hire that I was expecting for replacement bike but they were pushing to do repairs. I was told this would be done by an approved repair. I called just after 9am to notify a claim and was told I would receive a call back within 10 to 15mins. I had to call back an hour later as no one had called back. The lady who answered, Jo, did deal with things straight away and was very helpful
