A DRIVER thought she was giving a one finger salute to an ordinary motorist but it was the police in an unmarked car.
The PSNI North Coast Facebook page said: ‘An awkward silence is one of the worst things ever and even more so when police officers are standing at your car window and you know exactly why they are there!!
‘That was the deafening silence we heard this evening when we had to stop a motorist who’s lane discipline was far from good.
‘She seemed to think that the roundabouts two lanes belonged to her and that our unmarked car did not belong there. As we sounded the cars horn to signal our presence and prevent a collision she decided to wave at us frantically using just one finger!
‘When we stopped to have that awkward conversation with her she claimed she was just waving at us.
‘Motorists please remember your lane discipline and remember the way to signal a motoring mistake is not using one finger’.
