EXAMINER.COM - A new chapter has been added to the game of cat and mouse played by drivers who speed and law enforcement personnel who try to catch them in the act. Only the "culprit" in this case was motionless at the time of her arrest.
ABC affiliate KTRK in Houston reports that Natalie Plummer was arrested and jailed for alerting drivers to the presence of a speed trap. Plummer was on her bike heading home from grocery shopping when she saw police pulling over alleged speeders. So she scribbled "Speed Trap!" on a grocery bag and stood at the side of the road holding up her makeshift sign.
While Plummer's method of alerting drivers to police activity might have been unprecedented, state laws covering such warnings are decades old.
In Washington, drivers may be fined $124 for flashing their high beams within 400 feet of another vehicle for any reason.
