If so, it's a point well taken.

When in an encounter with an aggressive driver, just smile and wave.

It's disarming. Literally.
30 years ago I told many Texans I would wipe my arse with a half a dozen of them and got no takers. Ancestors name was Crockett and we are related.
I did however buy a new 1984 Honda CRX 1.5 and averaged 44 MPG for 50k miles until I sold it for $5K. Paid $7K new.
Different times but still an ancient ecomodder long before it was considered sensible, even if it is today.
The point you seem to so easily have missed was it was 3 grade school children giving the salute back. I guess they raise agressive drivers from birth in Texas.
Arrogance from birth?
