A wave and an acknowledgement of the spotting, usually happens if the other person also notices team-bhp stickers on your vehicle and reciprocates

I also had this in mind from many days.
Now whenever I see a flashing light behind me in traffic and if I don't see any reason for his flashing, I flash my rear fog lamps back to the other car.
After this I just hope it was a spotting and he has seen me flashing back and check this thread.
But till now none of these flashing and flashing back things involving my car have been reported on this car.

But if you don't have rear fog lamps or if you have time, confirm that its a spotting and then either wave or pull over to the roadside if you can.

If flashing your lights is an indication of a spotting, I have been spotted virtually every day, usually by sweaty guys driving Indicabs

Seriously though, it's a tough call how to communicate to another driver that you've spotted him. There were some suggestions earlier on in this thread but they fizzled out. I frankly feel uncomfortable honking and flashing lights at some poor guy just because he sports the stickers!

A 'thumbsup' is the usual standard i guess. Maybe a wave or a honk back also works

Have seen you a couple of times on the Elevated road ,but your usual driving style just didnt deserve a post here .

If you cant drive sensibly ,please remove that sticker from your bumper ! Thereis no difference between you and the mad bus driver in Pune who killed 9 people today

I'll keep a lookout for your figo. my ride is a black linea. Its usually parked at home on weekdays. I am forced to take the bike to office, due to the cursed marathahalli traffic. Try spotting the car at my home just a 100 metres radius around that red palio.

I honked and flashed my lights then you took a left and parked adjacent to the kerb. I crossed you but i guess you did not notice my stickers.
I was in a black fusion.
Oops! Sorry I missed you. It would have been great to meet up.

I was finding a place to park near C-Block market to visit the ATM - for taking out cash to pay a traffic challan. I was on the last day of my three month period having been radar'd overspeeding at 70.3 kmph on Rajesh Pilot Marg at 14:03 on Diwali day! Since then I am driving with the speed limit warning at 50 kmph enabled.

I frequent the area so I'll keep a sharp look out for the Black Fusion. Thanks for spotting.

(wish I was doing 140 when I was radar'd so my 400 bucks would be worth it)

Finally an acknowledgement. Yes, even i frequent that area. I thought of stopping but then you seemed in an urgency to park so i thought i would catch up with you in 15 mins but when i returned, you were not there.

You shouldn't overspeed :P

Spotted and guess/hope was spotted too!

What: White VW Polo
Where: Between Dollars and Pounds and Cancer Institute signal.
When: 9:45pm today
Regn #: TN 01 xx 9135

I was the one who was in the Silver Alto. Flashed you from behind a couple of times and then overtook you and was right in front of you. Waved at you when you honked and flashed at me (just once). You took the right towards Kotturpuram while I continued straight towards Guindy.

Who are you mate??

Agree with you 100%. I apologise for the inappropriate words not befitting this forum... a result of guilt masquerading as jest.

Post being challaned I am much more sober on city roads, driving with speed warning on at 50 kmph.
