A driver learned an important lesson last night about the importance of good manners after making an obscene gesture to the driver of another vehicle after she almost caused a road traffic collision.
It turned out the other car was an unmarked car belonging to the PSNI.
A social media post for PSNI North Coast read ‘An awkward silence is one of the worst things ever and even more so when 👮🏻👮🏻police officers are standing at your car window and you know exactly why they are there!!
That was the deafening silence 🙊we heard this evening when we had to stop a motorist who’s lane discipline was far from good. She seemed to think that the roundabouts two lanes belonged to her and that our unmarked car did not belong there. As we sounded the car’s horn to signal our presence and prevent a collision she decided to wave at us frantically using just one finger!
When we stopped to have that awkward conversation with her she claimed she was just waving at us………. #soundsofsilence
Motorists please remember your lane discipline and remember the way to signal a motoring mistake is not using one finger.’
