No, not that hand signal, although, a Nov. 15th, 2009, Ask Marilyn column had a wonderful Q&A about those hand signals (aka “motorist salute”), that is, she agreed with a reader that a SORRY! hand signal was desperately needed.
(And this post is not about Turn Signals, which I talked about in another Traffic Week blog post.)
None of us is perfect and there are times when we wish to convey our contrition.
However, do read the DMV Official Rules about Driver Signals: DMV driver pamphlet (large file, 5+ MB – if you survive the download, look for the word “driver signals”)
And if you are so inclined, read the actual laws in the Oregon Vehicle Code (in the ORS).
