(KTVI) - Last November a man says he was driving along Kiefer Creek Road when he flashed his headlights to warn oncoming traffic of a potential Ellisville officer had set up a speed trap.

He was pulled over by an Ellisville police officer and issued a citation for "flashing lights to warn of radar ahead."  The American Civil Liberties Union of Eastern Missouri, says THAT violates First Amendment protections of drivers.

Ellisville police are regularly issuing citations to drivers who flash their headlight with fines up to $1,000.  Defense Attorney Chet Pleban talks about the issues.
