Well, a Seminole County, Florida deputy ticketed the man (seems someone got upset their fishing net got a hole poked in it) under a statute that was designed to prevent civilians from using emergency lights. A stretch of a law to prevent civilians from using lights that resemble sirens? No doubt, but the officer used the letter not the spirit of the law against the person who was helping, not hurting, their fellow motorists.
Thankfully a Judge in Florida did the right thing and saw flashing lights to convey information to motorists as free speech. Communication between motorists, even be it the flashing of lights, is protected as free speech. The man who was ticketed, Ryan Kinter, still has a Stop sign ticket he is fighting with Seminole County but on behalf of all automotive enthusiasts we salute him for not allowing a Police officer to trample his, and all of our, First Amendment rights.
