Government authorities have promulgated traffic laws to assure the personal safety of car drivers, passengers and pedestrians. Car drivers on the road must abide by and communicate with one another primarily according to the laws of the road as established by the public authorities.
Since the law cannot anticipate all possible traffic scenarios, car drivers, while behind the wheel of their vehicles, have adopted beyond the law a few creative ways to communicate with one another; they often use their vehicle headlights in attempting to get another driver’s attention. Since using vehicle headlights to communicate is by no means a universal language or a standard protocol, car drivers can only guess what message or messages the other car drivers are sending. Besides, using headlights and especially the transition from low beam to high beam can be a hazardous apparatus to utilize to alert and send message (s) to another driver traveling in the opposite direction at night on county roads because of the possibility of temporarily blinding the other car driver.
A simple, concise, and safe protocol is needed to allow car drivers to signal each other of impending road hazards and other traffic incidences such as slow traffic ahead, accidents, asphalt repairs, and perhaps of nearby police cars.
This empirical protocol does not supplement the law nor does it replace it. Follow the law. Safe driving saves lives. This protocol only aims at creating a universal standard language that all car drivers can use while behind the wheel to better communicate with one another about unforeseen traffic situations at their discretion.
