Hey there is an accident up ahead

On Friday of last week, trying to make my way home, I ran into two different accidents causing back-ups. At both points someone on the other side of the interstate would turn and point backwards. Is this the common accepted way of saying that there is an accident up ahead? At first I thought they were just waving, but realized they could have been signaling when I ran into traffic not long after the second guy did it.August 14, 2008 at 4:01 pm #10500megaspazParticipant
No real specific hand signal for that that I’m aware of. Up here, usually, the hand signal for slow it down is used to denote an accident, obstruction, slow traffic ahead, or construction. Sometimes people use that to signal LEO ahead. The slow it down hand signal’s arm low and raising the forearm up and down like you’re patting the head of a dog.
Never seen the point backwards thing…
If there’s anything more important than my ego
around, I want it caught and shot now…
