Almost half of UK road users confess to flashing other drivers to warn of speed checks ahead, according to a poll carried out by I AM.

I AM Chief Inquisitor Peter Rodgerer confirmed that only 21% of respondents thought drivers should be prosecuted for flashing warnings to other road users.

Not that this helped the motorist who was fined £175, plus £250 costs last month, for speed flashing, according to Fleet News.

The most promising mitigation, should you get nabbed speed flashing, is apparently to claim you were attempting to avert the dangers associated with unwarned drivers decelerating suddenly.

Worth a try, Bankstone News supposes.
