Over a year of Jukedom and not once have I received a positive response to a wave, thumbs-up or smile from another Juker passed on the road. Plenty of blank looks and even a few glares

UNTIL TODAY

So, at 15:27, entry to ASDA West Bridgford, a red Juke and a smiley female owner .

I was so taken aback, I missed the lights changing and got hooted. Did I care? NOOOOO.

A Haptic Blue on the A606 at the lights between Plumtree and Cotgrave Road at about 13:20.
A White in Keyworth village centre, outside the newsagent's shop yesterday around 17:30.

in 2 years of Jukedom i have never had one person in another Juke wave or flash their lights at me, i think it is disgraceful. they should make it law

Me too. Mind you, it gets risky flashing lights these days - if there's a speed trap nearby, you could end up in court.

Went through the same thing when I had an MX5.. Never got a wave so gave up...

I thing the waving thing is purely for bikes.. The majority of bikers are enthusiasts so the chances are you'll get a response back..

The majority of car drivers (whatever type) are not... There lies the difference

Another problem is with the darkened rear windows - means from head on, it's not always easy to see in the car.

Asda in WB used to be my local, still remember the day they put McDonalds in it, and the day they took it out!
