On the weekend as I was driving from Secunda to Jo-burg, I noticed how I felt when I let someone over take me (moving slightly to the left) – they would pass, then put their hazard lights on briefly to thank me for; and I in return, would flash them (with my brights) briefly.
And likewise, if I over took another vehicle – the same “communication: would occur.
There is beautiful humanity in that. A wonderful sense of solidarity.
(When people would not thank me, I’d be slightly annoyed / And it doesn’t take much effort for me to thank a fellow driver or acknowledge their gratitude.)
Manners shouldn’t die. Chivalry is not dead!
