It is difficult to engage in any collective activity, but at the same time not communicate with others in any way. Especially if the “business” is as important and responsible as driving a vehicle. Alas, technical restrictions do not allow drivers to communicate effectively with each other, and the created rules, although they add order to the road, are often not able to help in private, relatively rare situations. And here gestures and generally accepted signals come to the rescue of drivers.
Signals from lighting fixtures
Double flashing high beam - an indication that there are some problems or even dangers ahead of the drivers. Most often, in this way, they warn about the traffic police patrol standing in front.
Turning on the high beam for a long time - long blinking with a high beam is an indication from those going to the meeting that someone in the oncoming traffic forgot to turn off the high beam and blinds everyone else.
Turning on the high beam behind the back - if a person walking behind blinks for a long time with a high beam, then he very much asks to give him the way, as he is in a hurry or is afraid that he will not be able to successfully complete the overtaking maneuver.
One short high beam beep - most often such a signal is used in traffic jams or at intersections. It means exactly that the sending signal passes the oncoming car preparing to pass.
Blinking "emergency gang" - another driver's "thank you", only this time left behind.
Multiple signals with brake lights - the driver in front urges you to keep your distance and not to cuddle up to him.
Raised palm - with a high degree of probability, the motorist thus wants to say "thank you" to the one going to the meeting. For example, for warning about a traffic police patrol ahead.
Cross arms - most likely, such a gesture means that there is something bad ahead: an accident with a large congestion or just a traffic jam in a difficult place.
Hand claps the air - a driver going to a meeting or ahead of you shows that the car's trunk or door is open.
Pointing with a hand (finger) to the curb - another driver asks you to stop and check your car carefully, as, in his opinion, there is some kind of malfunction.
"Fig" - this signal is most often shown to drivers of trucks: trucks, trucks, gazelles. Thus, another driver shows that something is stuck in the wheel and an urgent need to stop and look.
Circle in the air - if another motorist draws a circle in the air with his hand or finger, and then leads him abruptly to the bottom, then in this way he is trying to say that your car has a flat tire.
Cotton on the shoulder - if a motorist going to a meeting slaps himself with a palm or a finger on the shoulder, then he definitely wants to warn everyone going to the meeting about a standing traffic police patrol.
Thumb down - this simple gesture shows that the motorist forgot to close the fuel filler flap after the last refueling.
