    I’ve done this in the past, but now I drive an ancient prius. My car is smaller than the truck nuts on a lot of the vehicles around me.

    I nudge to the left as though I’m trying to peek over their shoulder to see if there’s a small unicycle in front of them causing the slowdown.

    Someone cut me off going through an intersection at the bottom of a steep hill and just stopped with his blinker on. So politely, I flashed my brights a couple of times, a bunch of traffic is piling up behind me and cars were swerving and slamming on their brakes to avoid an accident. Tons of honking from everybody who’s pissed at this guy. So, he decides to get out of his car and shout at me about it. “My hazards are on what’s honking gonna accomplish?!” Me: “That’s your turn signal.” Him: “Damn I guess my lights are broken, too. Well you shouldn’t be honking so much!” Me: “I flashed my brights, everybody else you made swerve off the road was honking at you.” Him: “Well your car’s dirty.” Steps away back to his road hazard.

    I still regret not laying down on the horn after that insult to my whip’s honor.

      Yep, I’m in a Miata. Everyone can see over me except the dude on the recumbent bike
