You have to think twice to actually go, it might as well be an insurance fraud where he just starts when you do and then says you took his right of way.

THIS!

This and other instances of people “just being nice” call back to a phrase I first heard many years ago when learning to ride motorcycles – “Be predictable, not polite.”

We, as drivers (and riders) are depending on you to agree to the rules of the road and behave in ways that we expect. When you don’t you not only screw up the flow of traffic, you raise safety issues.

I tell anyone and everyone who has never ridden a bike this. Please don’t wave a bike across lanes or stop and allow it to turn or pass. A car behind you may rearend you or try to pass and then that rider and your car are both screwed. Stop being nice and just obey the rules we’ve all agreed to. Give us (and your fellow drivers) the space they deserve and if you wanna be nice, just give us a smile and a wave.

Many times from the way they wave you through it seems like it’s some sort of power trip. Like they get off on feeling like they’re in charge.

I just give them an exaggerated head shake and honk my horn. If they still don’t go, I put my hands behind my head and lean back against my headrest.

My pet peeve is sitting at a STOP sign waiting to enter a four lane highway and the guy turning onto my road from said highway waives for me to go first. Dude, I’m not going until you do, you have freaking right of way!

I do it when im unsure of if the other person will try going when i do. I did that once without waving or waiting and they went and crashed into me

Ah yes, the captains of traffic, believing they are the authority of the road
