Irrelevant Gesture

I was wondering if when drivers raise their hand in gesture of thanks to another driver letting them pass, waiting patiently pr whatever - does the other driver even see?

I mean I can hardly make out a constant face let alone a hand waving for a moment.

So who are gestures for, the person making it, knowing they are doing the right thing.

Or are gestures meant to be received? In that case, this hand waving gesture should be phased out.

However, going back to the previous statement...I very often find gestures are only there to soothe the person doing its conscience.


  1. I've seen and returned other peoples gestures.

  2. well I don't drive yet...
    But as a pedestrian, the hand guestures come in handy, so I know when the cars let me cross or not.

  3. I always notice when a driver waves his hand in thanks or to let me go. And I think it is very polite. I am always impressed by the "wavers".


Hey, you know what's going on in my head, what's up in yours?
