OPINION: Why I don’t flash my headlights

AM I unAustralian for not flashing my lights to warn other motorists of police radars?

According to a few people I have come across, I am.

In my younger and more naive days I was partial to warning others with the odd flick of the headlights after passing a speed camera.

Do you think it is unAustralian to not flash your headlights? Have your say and join ther conversation below. 

Maybe it was becoming a little older and wiser or maybe it reporting on more and more fatals that made me realise I wasn't doing anyone any favours.

If you speed, you should quickly consider slowing down.

Not to save money on unnecessary fines or to avoid attracting demerit points.

But to lessen the risk of having your obituary written long before it needs to be or god forbid, another motorist's.
