If another driver lets you merge in front of them on the road, do you give them the "thank you" wave?

    OMG this is such a pet peeve of mine. I go out of my way to let people merge and 1 in 10 usually wave a thanks. Truckers on the other hand almost always give me the blinking taillights when I let them come over. I know where that comes from though since I used to drive big trucks in the military.

    If they are willing to show me kindness in allowing me to merge in front of them, then I can afford to take a moment and say thank you.

    sometimes i do sometimes i don't... down in Miami where i live it really doesn't make a difference on how much better people drive. so giving a thank you wave is really only a waste of time in Miami...

    This isn't about making better drivers, it's about courtesy. If it's a waste of time to give them a thank you wave, then it's a waste of time for them to have allowed you to merge in front of them in the first place. Doesn't matter where you live, can't use location as an excuse for bad attitude & bad manners.
