...those who assert that 'speed limit' means 'upper bounds' and as tax payers, they have an equal right to any and every lane at any speed up to and including the 'speed limit').
Folks who block the passing lane at or below traffic speeds are using their limited ability to enforce speed limits - we refer to them as '[b]copro[b]lites.' (If you don't know what a coprolite is, it's worth your while to look it up! )

I'm just back from a relatively short 600+ miler. My Silverado has the auto (always on) headlights and I use a short blip of the highbeams to signal a passing trucker that he is safe to pull in. It's never been a problem and never (to my knowledge) been misinterpreted. I'd say on average about 60-70% of truckers flash an acknowledgment. But I have noticed that some outfits are less responsive than others. Schneiders seldom thanks you. Maybe their drivers are always grumpy.

BTW, I like to use a SHORT blip of the highs so I usually watch the trucker's side mirror. It's easy to see when he turns his head to check the mirror. That's when I give him the flash.
