    rolleyes Do you ever give way/flash people out?

    as the title people?

    reason i ask is i always flash people in or out or through, simply because if i have been sitting at a junction for ages and someone lets me out, it genuinly makes my day!

    so i like to return the favour for others

    however half the population have no idea what to do when you flash them out or in! they just sit there!! then u have to re-flash them usually about 4 times with gestures before they get the idea and move

    I usually flash them once,if they are too slow or just didn't see then tough,i'm gone.
    Most people don't take enough notice what is happening around them,if they did more people might get along and alot quicker.

    if there is a queue of traffic, and i'm on the main road, i go by the "let one out, and go" rule. Couldn't care less if they wave to say thanks or not.

    What I don't like, is when people stop dead on the main road to let me, or anyone else out when there's hardly any cars about.
    It would take the car at the junction just 5 more seconds to turn if the silly driver on the main road just kept going.

    As I drive for a living it annoys me when you flash and flash and flash and they either don't understand you or they pull out and don't even say thanks or acknowledge it so I tend not to bother unless I can make direct eye contact with them

    as often as i can, but not taxi drivers and women, taxi drivers around this area drive like they own the roads and i find women so ignorant that when flashed on or waved out rarely wave to say thanks.

    Not just some women then??

    I for one will let people out and tend to agree on the one out and go merging kinda rule. If the traffic is slow moving and I can see someone I tend to just roll to the junction flashing them out well in advance and like said before if they haven't pulled out by time I get there I go won't stop dead, that's their fault for not watching. If in the car with Matt and he's driving I always say thanks as well as him, force of habit I suppose.

    Pet hate is merging motorway's/coming out of a lay-by why no one moves over to the next lane, that does annoy me!!
