Flashing your headlights to tip off other drivers to cops now officially free speech in Oregon

In Oregon, a judge has ruled that a truck driver who flashed his headlights to warn another truck driver that Old Smokey had them ears on and was hot on the trail is totally free speech.

"The citation was clearly given to punish the Defendant for that expression," the judge wrote. "The government certainly can and should enforce the traffic laws for the safety of all drivers on the road. However, the government cannot enforce the traffic laws, or any other laws, to punish drivers for their expressive conduct."
