The National Association of Hand Signallers (NAHS) have complained about the significant decrease in drivers using traditional wavy arm signals from their open windows.
The NAHS reached its peak membership in the 1970’s, when hand signals from your smokey open driver’s window were all the rage.
NAHS President, Peter Thape blames modern cars for not breaking down often enough, and a general lack of desire for people to tow one another.
‘I used to love all the hand twirling, and waving people past. It was brilliant,’ admitted Thape.
‘And where’s your blue frayed tow rope nowadays? There’s a time when you’d never leave home without it,’ added a disappointed Thape.
