    Man arrested for warning drivers of speed trap

    A Frisco, Texas, man now faces trial following an arrest last October for holding up a sign warning drivers they were about to enter a speed trap, KHOU.com reports.
    Police say they spotted Ron Martin standing on the center median of a six-lane roadway, holding a sign that read "Police ahead," according to MyFoxDFW.com.
    In the arrest report, police officer Thomas Mrozinski wrote that he became wise to Martin's ruse when he saw drivers "waving at us." This wasn't the first time Martin had held up a sign to warn drivers about the fuzz's presence.

    I don't get it, either.

    Here's the heart of it, to me. If we're doing traffic enforcement in order to gain voluntary compliance and promote public safety, and not as a revenue generator... then why are you hassling someone who's furthering that goal by getting people to slow down?

    At the same time... Yeah, I get the frustration and annoyance. I liked the ingenuity of one guy I know who stopped a car that he saw flashing oncoming cars to investigate possible defective equipment... But they weren't actually cited, let alone taken into custody.

    Why would an officer do something so boneheaded? He is mistaken for taking something like this personally.
