    I think you are about a decade too late. Some early Prius owners did this when the cars were scarce. But now that we see another Prius just about every other minute, this is simply impractical.

    Most Prius drivers already wave at me as I pass them at a high rate of speed. They do save a lot of energy as they only wave with 1 finger.

    All that wave would do to Prius owners around here is confuse them. Instead of associating it with the car, they'll be confused wondering where you know each other from.

    There are simply too many of them around here driven by all sorts of people who see them as reasonably cheap transportation and they are not enthusiasts in any way, shape or form.

    One thing I do often though when I find myself in our 2008 next to a 2016 at a stoplight is to point to the car and give a thumb up. Most of the time they understand and smile in return.

    I hope these responses are not from the officers.

    In this neck of the woods, so to speak, if you drive a pickup truck its a requirement to wave when you pass anyone...:)

    It usually occurs to me that that was a Prius within 30 seconds of when they went by.
