Although I like to mix it up with other universal gestures depending on the miscreants manoeuvre in question. It can often have more impact than a solitary digit extension. Eye contact is preferable:
►The Golf Clap
Useful for applauding 'jobs well done' ie nearly being wiped out.
►The Head Shake
Slow and exaggerated often accompanied by the clear mouthing of "****ing idiot". Useful for expressing disbelief whilst belittling another drivers existence.
► The Appendage Massage
There are two variants here: The standard simulated 'air massage' gesture or the more specific 'You have an appendage attached to your head' motion. The larger the transgression, the larger the gesture.
Bonus emphasis is awarded when you can combine all three gestures in succession.
Any or all of these gestures are usually responded to with the solitary digit response. An acceptable return is the 'yoo-hoo' cheeky wave with an adorned smug smile affixed.
