It happened again. I pull up to the four way stop about the same time as another car to my right. They have the right of way of course, but they don’t move. So I wave them on, they still don’t move. At this point I have a choice, I could ignore the fact that I have waved them on and that they have the right of way and risk an accident by just going instead. I could do that, but I have had enough of the “oh are you going? No I am going? Ok you go, wait aren’t you going?” gas and brake moments at stop signs to just give up that practice. So I wait. I wave them on again. Nothing. At that point two other cars pull up. Frustrated I finally just go.
Let me state the obvious here, if you have a car with tinted windows…other cars can’t see if you wave them on. At night time, regardless of your tinting, no one can see you. This car had tinted windows so it is very possible that they were waving me on as well…not realizing the obvious, I couldn’t see them!
I don’t have tinted windows. It was the middle of the day. This happens to me about once a month. Am I just too nice and need to stop waving other cars on? Even when they have the right of way? Or should I stop waving on anyone who has tinted windows? Now isn’t that some sort of ism? Like tintism?
