Is the warning of a jogger better than a ticket from a cop?
If you say that the jogger should not have warned the drivers, then you are taking away an opportunity to fear and consider the punishment (the function of law), as well as an opportunity to consider slowing down on the basis of virtue.
You're arguing that the driver should be limited in his ability to act virtuously. This programs a person to observe power, fear, fines, rather than virtue or even just well-intended advice.
