"That man driving past us just waved at you, dad, and you didn't wave back," said our youngest son the first week we relocated to Iowa.
"Sorry, son, I didn't see him waving," I responded.
"Dad, everybody in Iowa waves. You're being rude."
Our son is right. Just about everybody you pass by on the Iowa roads waves. It's subtle. Here's how it works...
- Keep one hand on top of the steering wheel at all times so it's visible to others drivers.
- As you approach an oncoming car, lift two fingers off the steering wheel.
- Give a slight head nod.
