It's a great way to discourage tailgaters and you'll save gas, too.
But I save gas tailgating the trailers!

Last summer heading north on hwy 89 southern Utah I came up on a motorhome doing 45 mph in a 60 mph and 65 mph area.......... two lane courvey area with no where to pass at least not with a motohome and trailer.
the guy turns on his left turning light, ok he's been looking for a side road........aaa no.....he keeps driving, turns it off..............then half mile later he does it again......I think he's telling me to pass, and there's no way......I'd need a half mile a of straigh road to pass, he does it again, so i TURN ON MY RIGHT TURN SIGNAL, you pull over, I can't pass.....will five miles later we came to a passing lane.............this will kill you.....as soon as we get in the passsing lanes He pulls over.............................................. .....don't be that guy, If you want to take your time at least be curtious. every one passing you is putting there life and your in danger.

I've done that many times but I flash it manually instead of leaving it on steadily.

I do 62 max in the far right lane. Have been passed by Prevosts moving so fast the passing air pressure almost sends me onto the shoulder. I just look at it that they will clear the way of cops for others.

I thought you were sneekin' peeks, Doc. I'm pullin' down my shades you rascal you.

When I drove trucks out on the highway we would signal one another when passing, when it was safe for the passing unit to pull in, especially on two lane roads. This was done simply by flicking the lights on / off in daylight and flashing the hi-beams at night.

A while back a guy pulling a 5er passed me out west of here on Hwy 4 and when it was clear of my motorhome I flashed my lights for him to come back into the east bound lane. We continued on our way but when we got to the Tempo Station just west of Port Alberni we decided we wanted a coffee and pulled in. We noticed the 5er was at the pumps fueling up, but thought nothing of it.

The driver of the 5er came over to my motorhome and started yelling at me for being rude to a tourist and when he finally shut up I explained why I did flash my lights. He got the usual "DUH" look on his face and turned and walked away, without even an attempt at an apology.

Some people have no clue, how to act or what to do.

I do the light trick all the time.. Truck, RV, or car dont matter... most truckers appreciate it even on the interstates, especially if they have a tailgator

Flashed my lights many many times over the years for the big rigs, usually I'm the slowest thing in the slow lane, so they're usually needing to pass me.

I ran across this blog post several years ago. I think it speaks to the current issue very artfully.

I hadn't thought of it that way but it seems to discribe a lot of people.
