TLontheDL Posted July 11, 2006 Share Posted July 11, 2006 What exactly does a flash of high beam mean in your city/state? Instantly one would think of it as an offensive gesture but not necessarily, right? I was traveling out of state last month and once I reached Oklahoma and Colorado, 70% of on coming traffic high beamed me and wouldn't turn it off unless i high beamed them back. I am guessing it is a way of saying hi instead of honking their horn. At 1st I thought of it as an offensive gesture but i came to realize its just a friendly gesture! As my 28 yrs of living in Texas, I have never seen or heard of this. It was new to me and I thought it was pretty cool! Also a positive high beam that I have always known was the "there is a police up ahead - slow down" warning for others on the oncoming traffic. They'll flash their high beams a few times instead of just having it on. I do it for others b/c people do it for me. Its good karma, if you believe in that kind of junk.
