Meh. If I'm so incompetent that I wave someone into incoming traffic, I deserve to be sued.

I would love to see how that lawsuit played out. Last I checked, I am 100% responsible for operating my vehicle in a safe and prudent manner.

"But your honor - the driver ahead of me signaled that it was safe to pass."

"WAS it safe to pass?"

"Well...no, but..."

<BANG> "Next case"

See them on the east coast in many states. Just seen a 10 mph sign for trucks on a hilly road but normal traffic was 65mph.

Can you picture yourself behind a truck doing 10mph.

OK ... never been to Alabama nor Alaska and in Californa, only driven on city streets and the Interstates where no such signs were noticed.

In Washington you will see

Speed Limit 65
Trucks 60

Washington law considers any vehicle over 10,000lbs gross, or any vehicle in combination (except "auto stages, which is apparently a fancy name for "bus") to be a "truck" for the purpose of speed limits.

Those same vehicles are also not permitted to be in the leftmost lane of any road with 3 or more lanes in the same direction at all, unless preparing to make a legal left turn.

Alaska does not have a lower speed limit for vehicles towing a travel trailer. If the speed limit is 65 mph, anyone towing a trailer can can legally do 65 mph.

Every time I enter CA on I-8 or I-10 I see the signs that indicate vehicles towing a trailer are limited to 55 mph. Most people towing a trailer ignore the signs, but they are there.
