If you where to flash your lights and prevent them breaking the speed limit before they do so then this is prevention (in the same way as if you warn someone before they steal something you have prevented the crime.)

Entrapment would be if a police officer travelling at the speed limit waved you to go passed, then stopped you for speeding. Stooping someone from preventing crime is not making the person commit the crime. Nice idea though.
As I have said I don't think the evidence would be enough to convict in a court.
How do you stoop someone???
