UK: If you warn other drivers about police speed traps, you could be fined £1,000

Most of us have experienced it – a friend warns us about a new speed camera or trap, advising us to be cautious when driving nearby.

But one driver learnt that warning other motorists of a police speed trap is a criminal offence – the hard way.

The driver was “waving frantically” at other motorists after passing a mobile speed camera on the A30 near Launceston, CornwallLive reports .

But, unfortunately for him, one of the drivers he ‘warned’ happened to be a police officer in an unmarked car.
