Other drivers may sometimes flash their headlights at you. In which situation are they allowed to do this?

To warn of a radar speed trap ahead

To show that they're giving way to you

To warn you of their presence
To let you know there's a fault with your vehicle

If other drivers flash their headlights, this isn’t a signal to show priority. The flashing of headlights has the same meaning as sounding the horn: it’s a warning of their presence.
