With the festive season approaching, roadblocks will be in full swing with many people being pulled over for drunk driving and invalid license disks. Have you ever found yourself flashing your lights to an approaching vehicle to warn them of a roadblock?
Although you may think you are helping them, you could find yourself facing the law.
What Could Happen To Me?
The Justice Project South Africa was formed to strongly warn motorists against warning others about police activity on the roads.
Although law officials may struggle to catch those motorists warning others, if you are caught, you could face a hefty fine.
According to the Traffic Department, by flashing lights at oncoming motorists to warn them of roadblocks or speed cameras, “attempts to defeat the course of justice”.
So next time you have the urge to warn another motorist about a roadblock, be aware that you might have to face the wrath of the law.
