I flash when I see a speed camera as I appreciate it when people flash me.
I dont speed but I dont want to get a speeding fine at all! My cars speedo is out and to get it fixed is going to cost a heck of alot of money so I roughly know I am following the speed limit but as you only have a 3 km reduction on a speeding fine if you are over the limit I prefer to err on the side of caution and go 10kms below the speed limit when I see a camera.
So yes I flash however if there is a hoon going double/triple the speed limit, I wouldnt flash.

As a country driver I always flash for straying animals or dangerous changes in road conditions, but not so much now that I am older to alert speeders of waiting police and multi-novas.
I have sometimes wondered, seeing that flashing is such a tradition in Australia, if we shouldn't change it from being illegal. My reasoning is this: everyone slows down if they are flashed, and if they aren't speeding then they generally take a little extra care. If every driver flashed a couple of times every time they went for a drive, traffic would slow and perhaps lives would be saved.
It would wreck the tradition, but might make a real difference to safer speeds and driving on our roads.

I used to, when I was younger, but not do much now.
As others have said, I do flash my lights as a warning if the oncoming driver is heading towards some kind of incident or danger.

I flash for hazards and flash extra when it's raining and people don't turn on their headlights! Biggest pet hate for me as I drive everywhere with headlights on and it's seriously so hard to see grey/silver/blue/black/white cars in rain!

It's not illegal to flash your lights because it's warning someone, but it is illegal to drive with high beams on when there is oncoming traffic; that's what's illegal, not the warning of someone.
No I don't. I hope speeders get caught.
