If you live in a small town, you'll know what I'm talking about.

As you're driving, you see another vehicle and as you pass each other, you wave. (The left hand, two-finger wave, is my personal favorite).

I now live in a suburban community where, though not as frequently as in rural communities, you still see motorists wave or recognize other motorists. I don't wave at everyone I see, but several times a day I'll acknowledge others with wave or nod.

I know exactly what you mean, Jimbo. I live in Northeast Alabama, and it is downright rude not to lift your hand to someone passing, even if you don't know one another. I'm glad manners still dwell in other places besides Dixie. BTW, thanks for the add. I am really enjoying being a part of this online community, of which I have only myself been a denizen for about two weeks. And Merci bouceau por vortre bon mots, mon ami.

Sounds very nice. friendly. british people are generally too restrained to wave (I'm a transplanted American), but they wave including my husband as acknowledgement to another driver as in a thank you. wavying in small towns sounds nicer though.

Yep. I grew up in a town of 700 people. You waved at every car you passed because you knew them. At least half of them were kinfolk.
