Was I too mean?

So I need some feedback. Up here is Alaska I don't get the opportunity to drive my Camaro very often. But when I do, I try to enjoy it. The other night I was sitting at a red light on a three lane road. I was in the middle, and to the left was an unmarked police car. He checked the car out and waved. On my right was an Audi. Now he was reving his engine wanting to race....completely oblivious of the cop next to me. I looked over at the cop and gave him the old head nod over in the Audi's direction. Then the light turned green and off went the Audi......and shortly after, off went the cop too. I was laughing so hard. I actually held back a second to give him the opportunity to cross in front of me. So here's the question. Was I wrong?

Funny story. But honestly, I would've tried to warn the Audi guy. I ALWAYS try to warn people about cops/speed traps when I can for two reasons.

1. It slows some speeders down.
2. From time to time, people warn me and save me the cost of a ticket and I hope it continues.

We have an Audi and a Camaro. I've owned Corvettes, Benz, Audi, Infiniti and have nothing against any of them. Do people a favor and one day you'll get one in return.

Oh man, if it was another Camaro I would have warned him. The intersection was pointing right towards the city. Crazy place to race. Even with a completely clean record, my insurance company told me not to get a ticket with the Camaro. It's high here because of the snow.

I think I would have even warned a Mustang. They were young kids driving the Audi, probably mom's car. The antagonizing way they were acting just got me to do it. Hopefully they learned their lesson.

I understand but what if you were the guy in the Audi? I know there is no real gesture to say no I don't want to race theres a cop beside me. So I guess what else could you have done, you didn't rev back.

Well what would you have done if you weren't aware the cop was there? Would you have gone with the Audi?

Audi driver is equally responsible to know there is a police car one over from him before his "demonstration of speed".

Could you have warned him? Sure.

Are you bad for not warning him? Not in my opinion.
