This guy stood near a stop sign and light that people routinely roll through. His sign, which happened to be made out of the top of a Rubbermaid box, said “Cops Ahead! Stop at signs and light.”
The Seattle police said they didn’t ticket him for holding up the sign they ticketed him for the “Stop at signs and light,” part. As this is giving instructions to other drivers. Essentially making his own road sign. They gave him his ticket, he crossed out the bottom of the sign and plans to continue holding it up.
He plans to fight the ticket, I guess on the grounds that his sign doesn’t look like a street sign.
The headline from the news website says “speed trap” but, it doesn’t sound like it was. It just sounds like they were ticketing people for rolling the sign.
