It may be a first for us. While we aren’t 100 percent on board with the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) on this issue, we are leaning on their side until convinced otherwise.

The ACLU filed a suit the other day in the U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Missouri, that challenges Ellisville’s practice of prosecuting drivers for flashing their headlights to warn other motorists of “radar ahead” or of a police officer on watch to nab speeders. Motorists know that an approaching vehicle that flashes its lights is a warning signal. We slow down. We use caution.
