This is one of those areas that the Constitution isn't really clear on so let the States and courts define it. You could make an argument either way.

Good ruling. The cop who issued that ticket is a complete dick. His purpose in setting up that speed trap is to get people to slow down. Flashing lights to warn others of his presence accomplished that purpose effectively without using police resources. The deliberate setup of speed traps to feed civil coffers with fines should be illegal.

Plus it causes me not to focus on my driving and when I am speeding, I really need to.:glee:

It's a good thing we can't be ticketed for common courtesy.
Stupid authoritarians.
