Helpful hand gestures may improve others’ driving
• May I suggest three fingers held aloft as a polite universal hand gesture to stop drivers using their mobile phone while driving (Letters, 19 September)? When the new proposals become law three fingers could be closed and raised again to denote six penalty points.
• Like your other correspondents, I often see people using their mobile phones while driving. Even more often, I am overtaken by drivers exceeding the 20mph speed limit. As they pass, I politely sign “2” and “0” with my fingers. Unfortunately, I fear they only have time to see the “2”.
