    Nicely done!
    If someone signals, they are asking your 'permission' to do something; change lanes, merge, slow down or stop.
    It doesn't take a minute to be a courteous driver and give way, allow room, of slow down so someone can merge etc.
    Unwritten rules among truckers dictate that they use their headlights to communicate i.e briefly flash their lights to say 'ok' to merge or change lanes, and to say 'thank you' for your assist/courtesy to do so.
    Most auto drivers have forgotten the common courtesy to use their turn signals, i.e. 'blinkers', to indicate their intentions on the road. NHTS and local law enforcement as well as dept. of motor vehicles need to assist with an awareness program to remind drivers to use their signals!!!
