speed-trap warnings OK'd

Drivers who pass through police speed traps and then flash their lights to warn oncoming drivers of the trap that awaits them are on solid constitutional grounds, a Missouri court has ruled.

Speed traps provide income to many a small town and you can imagine that the cops and town fathers might be irked if their best laid plans should go awry.

Of course official reasoning cites "safety" as the main concern when it comes to radar-reliant speed traps, but the safety involved has a strange tendency to generate welcome income.
