Day time flash or low beams being momentarily shut off at night will give you (almost) all of the thank you flashes you are seeking.
If there isn't a positive response when these conditions are met, I'll have to side with you on the rude trucker thing
Though I would rather drive at night,, IT was day time. Wife would rather we travel in day so she can view the countryside.
Thus we ususally do our travelling between 10 am and 4 PM, and that was the case here.
