    Then again I'd be in favor of adding regulators to all US automobiles and making tampering with them punishable by permanent loss of you license.

    I don't think it's much different. Having the same wording on both signs could accomplish the same job. "Warning, cops!" They almost never post signs when cops are pulled over and the move-over law would be violated if someone didn't move.

    The options with a law you don't like are....

    Live with it and follow it.
    Break it and deal with the consequences
    Leave the jurisdiction of the law.

    I'm choosing the third option.

    So, where is that you are going? Real question, honest curiosity.

    Lookouts for a bank robbery are conspiring with bank robbers... so if bank robber lookouts are conspiring to rob a bank, what/who was she conspiring(with) to do? You still haven't answered that.

    Which means you are just fabricating wrong-doing out of thin air like these cops where doing.

    Conspiring with the drivers going past her on the road while speeding.

    What? Are you kidding? So I suppose you think that truckers using the CB for the same reasons are criminals too right?
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Why? I think all drivers, regardless of what they drive, should be free of asinine regulations. Freedom does wonders for safety.

    Ohhh.... I'm an idiot! I thought you meant that flashing your lights should be illegal. Doh!

    Believe me, I don't. As Saint Augustine said in the 4th century, "An unjust law is no law at all."

    I believe in freedom, not the police state. I believe in allowing people to do as they feel is right so long as they do not infringe upon the rights of others. I believe in peace.

    You apparently believe in force. You apparently believe that the state knows better than individuals what is best for themselves. You apparently believe that man is stupid and helpless and needs to be protected and guided by government even though that very government is comprised of men.
