I use the British Sign Language sign for "Thank you"

With fingers of your right hand held together, touch your chin, then move them away with the palm raised upward (almost like blowing a kiss). Perhaps the other motorists will not know I am saying "Thank you", but I know I am.

There is also a sign for when someone has cut you up, or some other driving offence, but I am far too much of a lady to disclose it on here. ;-)

EDIT............ I missed a word out rry

I favour occasionally the 'John Terry Verbal Dexterity' method of communication.

Handshakes are ill-advised. A toxic combination.

Or perhaps a quick pat on your forehead to show you realise you made a mistake.

This was tried many moons ago :~
Hold up 3 fingers slightly apart in the horizontal position
Which looked like the letter “ E ” which stood foe “ Excuse me “
But it didn’t take off owing to the use of other finger signaling mentioned already.
