Etiquette was invented to make life easier. These days there are hundreds of etiquette guidelines. We have telephone etiquette, wedding etiquette, e-mail etiquette, cell phone etiquette, we even have web etiquette called netiquette!
I was thinking if we really want to make life easier, we need some automobile etiquette, or driving etiquette. You know, like the way the semi’s blink their lights twice when they are saying “thank you” to pull over in front of you? Now, isn’t that nice? If we could just get some common communication between cars it would make life so much easier. We could honk twice for “please move over” or we could lean out the window and give a high five for someone who manages to get to the front of the line when traffic is merging because a lane is running out.
Let’s be realistic! Auto etiquette is in dire need, but realistically, I don’t think people want to love each other when in their cars.
