Hand Signal - accident ahead?
Please excuse me if this has been asked before, but I did a search and didn't come up with an exact answer.
Is there a hand signal for "accident ahead" ?
This past weekend the car about 1/4 mile in front of me clipped a deer. I made it through the scatter of grill and headlight parts just fine, as most of the parts ended up in the other (oncoming) lane. I will admit it was a little un-nerving tho. A mile or two farther up the road I met two bikers and the only thing I knew to do was to give them the "slow down" hand signal hoping it would help them avoid the debris in their lane ahead.
I'm a new rider and trying to be as educated as possible. I've learned all the "standard" hand signals and try to wave when it is safe to do so and at least give a head nod when my left hand is busy. Just curious if there was any better way to communicate what they were heading into.
