    Default Flashing to Pass

    You are driving in the left lane. Another car comes up behind you and the driver briefly flashes his/her headlights. Which of the following best describes your view of the situation?

    it means you want to pass, no this isn't europe but SLOWER TRAFFIC KEEP RIGHT, if someone is going faster than you and politely signaling to move out of the way, do so. End of fucking story.

    1 other option is that there is something going on (like speed trap, etc.) going the other direction, and they are warning the drivers going the other direction

    Ha! It's definitely road rage. You've got the upperhand if you're in front of him, that's all the ammo he has short of the horn and ramming you from behind.

    I'm going to guess brake lights but most of the time it's just someone with loose headlights.

    When someone flashes me i look at the kind of car they are driving. If they're driving a tuner, it often means to me that they want to race. That is the most often occurence for me. I have raced a porche carrera in my WRX and I smoked 'em. Just a little sidenote. But that is often how other street racers signal me to bring it to 'em... lol i try to go easy on the exotic car drivers, but the tuners i crush... lol

    I do it all the time on the highway, most people are polite enough to move over and let me pass. When people do it to me I move as well....Its an unwritten driving rule..

    My post was meant that even though we aren't in civilized europe, people should still learn to stay on the fucking right unless they are passing... Or unless they are going way more than the speed limit in which case, they can have the left lane. You see this on highways in europe, outside lane (right) everyone going slightly below speed limit ~100ish, middle lane, most people going speed limit ~110 ish, outside left lane, most people going above 130+

    thats why they hang the speed cameras on the left hand side poles on the highway where i'm from

    I flash my lights twice to signal to move, I turn my lights off and on to signal for people to turn their lights on, I flash three+ times if I see a cop and I'm trying to warn you - I blink left constantly if I am in the left lane going very very fast to warn people to get out of my way + the double tapping of the brights - works better in BC ... people have no road manners here, damn hicks

    Yup...

    I've done the double tap, the minivan or pickup ignored it, i went up on their tail for 5 seconds and then angrily change lanes and finger me ... wtf motherfucker, it doesn't cost you anything to change lanes, all you're doing is slowing me down.. fuckers.

    LOL...I think if someone ever tries to flash me to move over, I will deliberately speed away at a high rate of speed and then slow back down to the speed limit and wait for him/her to catch up, wait for them to do it again...LOL...and then repeat...LOL
