Flashing Lights 

So one thing that I have noticed since moving semi rural….. people Like to flash their headlights…. Frequently 

  • they do it to indicate an accident or other delay ahead 
  • they do it to indicate that there is an animal or group of animals on the road 
  • they do it to indicate that the road is blocked in some way 
  • they do it to indicate RFS operations ahead 
  • they do it to indicate that there is a police car parked up ahead (potentially checking speeds)
  • most annoyingly they do it to indicate that there is a mobile speed camera ahead 

why is that last one annoying? well first we’ll start with mobile speed cameras 

they’re basically a Ute with a canopy filled with cameras, their main reason for existence is to slow people down especially in high risk areas 

they always place a sign around 500m from their parked vehicles saying that they are there, and one around 500m after saying that your speed has been checked 

and that’s for the side of the road that they are targeting.

and yet frequently People from the side being targeted will flash oncoming drivers for up to 5ks 

expecting to come across a tree down or a major accident for 5ks with some idiot in front driving well below the posted speed in case there’s a police car radar around the corner is plain and simply annoying 

now on the mobile cameras, I feel that they are working quite nicely, there a 3-4 areas on my way to work that I stick to the limit and 3 on the way home…. because you never know when they are there and it’s more economic anyway
