“please dont flash your headlights at any car with no headlights on! Police officers is working with the DARE program and has issued this warning! if you are driving after dark and see a on-coming car with no headlights on, "do not flash your headlights at them" this is a common "Bloods" gang member "initiation game". the new gang member, under initiation, drives along with no headlights on and the1st car to flash their headlights at them is now his "target." he is now required to turn around and chase that car, then shoot and kill individual in the vehicle in order to complete his initiation requirements. police departments across the nation are being warned. the gang's intent is to have "bloods" nationwide, drive around on Friday and Saturday nights with their headlights off. in order to be accepted into the gang, they have to shoot and kill all individuals in the 1st auto that does a "courtesy" flash. please forward to all loved ones!”

“By 1984 the story had spread to Eugene, Oregon and had by then changed into a tale of Black  and hispanic street gangs in Los Angeles targeting white people. "Flash your headlights and have a prospective gang member kill you as part of his initiation"  legends have been with us for more than twenty years, something that should be kept in mind as hysteria builds during new outbreaks of this panic.” -Snopes.com
