This is a thing that drivers here in New York do and I'm so tired of it.

Stop pointing at me.

The Hudson Valley is home to some of the worst drivers on the planet. It's one thing to be a bad driver but if you're rude and short tempered that's not a good combination.

I've encountered something I call 'the New York point' while I was at an intersection. I've seen this twice over that last a few weeks.

You're probably wondering what I'm talking about. Ever since I moved to New York I have noticed this thing that drivers do when you make a mistake. They'll pass you and point at you or shake their finger at you like your a child.

The other day I was stuck at an intersection and I was having trouble seeing one side. I did the responsible thing and slowly started to creep out. A car came by that I didn't see so I stopped immediately. No one was hurt and no one was ever in danger. They gave me the point as if they were going to push my car back with their mind. It's just passive aggressive road rage.

I had another encounter with the point at the Galleria parking lot yesterday in Poughkeepsie.

Has anyone else noticed this?
