That's sad but I kind of understand. Many states have posted minimum speed limits (which I assume are at least de facto, if not de jure, only aimed at car drivers, or discouraging scooters and the like); others have a REQUIREMENT to use flashers under a certain speed (which conversely I've always presumed to be aimed squarely at truckers).

As a truck driver myself, I can't fault the instinct to run flashers; it's a margin of warning for those who are running high speeds behind you. I'd probably have done the same myself. Maybe as a strategic move, it's possible to use a truck as a "rabbit"?
