Great idea for lane changes. I can tell you from personal experience the it also works wonders for tailgaters. Yes, Atlanta is one of the worse places I have ever driven through and, when inevitable, I adjust my schedule to avoid any proximity to rush hour. That's when they really get crazy. 75 - 80 mph in the middle of all those lanes and with my trailer in tow is not my idea of a good time.

PS The wiggle-waggle also works well for allowing you a fairly good view of what is behind you.

PPS In most states failing to yield the right of way after receiving a turn signal is a serious traffic offense.

There is one thing I just thought about with sway, Hopefully when you start to sway because of traffic, the Trooper three cars behind you in an unmarked car has a good since of humor, just be prepared for that issue.
