COLLIN COUNTY (CBSDFW.COM) – A warning for people in Frisco, but this one is coming from a citizen rather than police.

The sign that in big, block letters says “COPS AHEAD” speaks for itself and can be read day or night.

Two years ago a Frisco man got arrested while holding a sign like it. Now, another man is on a campaign against speeding tickets in Frisco, but this time police are so far letting him do it.

A video posted to YouTube shows Brett Sanders getting in the face of Frisco police officers who are on traffic patrol. He then drives down the street and holds a sign warning passing drivers know to slow down.

“I’ve seen other activists hold signs to warn about speed traps and I’m just kind of playing off of that,” Sanders said.

Back in 2013, Frisco resident Ronald Martin was arrested for holding a similar sign. Frisco police say that was because Martin was violating the city’s sign ordinance, but the citation issued to him was later dismissed.

Police have so far let Sanders get to speeders before they can.

When asked why he was doing it Sanders said, “It’s really just a way to prevent citizens from getting a ticket, which is really a victimless crime.”

While most drivers probably love what Sanders is doing, at least some disapprove. Dallas resident Valarie Pace said, “I think it’s just not his duty to advise that the cops are there. It’s my duty to obey the law.”

Sanders may look familiar because of a 2013 CBS 11 News story that spotlighted his crusade to keep law enforcement from stripping away the right to photograph and videotape in public.

He insists his latest mission isn’t just a publicity stunt. When asked if he was just trying to get ‘under the skin’ of cops he said, “I don’t see that way at all. It’s really just to protect my fellow citizens from getting a ticket.”

Wednesday night Frisco police sent the following statement –

“We don’t have an official stance on the actions of this individual. If he is not breaking any state laws or city ordinance, residents are free to conduct themselves as they please.”

There is no law against citizens warning about speed enforcement, so drivers will probably see Sanders out again slowing down speeders.
