Mirror, Signal, Say Thank You

It is claimed rude and stressed out drivers in Cornwall are putting lives at risk.
A Penzance man is spearheading a campaign to get us to be more considerate behind the wheel.
Rob Harding wants more motorists to do things like letting people pull out and saying thank you.
He told Pirate FM: "It could have a huge impact on road accidents and deaths. It's like putting on a seatbelt. It can become totally automatic - it works. You're not going to get there any quicker by driving dangerously, you might not get there at all.
"If people drive politely the traffic flows better and, on the whole, you're much more alert to traffic conditions. You wouldn't get yourself into a dangerous situation. Why not drive sensibly?"
Diane from Penzance is backing the idea after she watched two drivers come to blows in a roadrage attack: "They actually got out of the cars and started getting into each other. The bloke just pulled round him, opened his door, jumped out, opened the door of the other driver and dragged him out and started punching him."7:01am 9th January 2013
