    Do you get snubbed by the bigger LCO's. What are your experiences while driving down the road? Do they wave to you? Do you wave to them? Or do you just get the dirty look and a drive by.

    I get a dirty look from the big ones, then I wave to them...Some of the solo LCO's i know so they wave back.

    I always wave. I ride a motorcycle (sportbike) and wave to the harley riders. I must say, I receive a better response rate from lcos than I do from harley riders. :laugh:

    9 times out of 10 the other lcos just PRETEND they dont see u until u pass them then they look in their rear view to see what u are working with.....Ive done this 98% of the time last year and will do it again 98% of the time this year too.

    I wave, but most of the bigger lco's around here have Hulio or Hernandez driving and they just have no clue what to do. As mentioned before I know most of the smaller ones so they all wave back. It is good to have connections in the business so I tried to be polite as much as possible.

    My next door neighbour is a big lco. I try and always wave. I also wave to a choice other few but not all. We have 4-5 lcos in our town of 500 (based in this town, we don't all work in it lol) and most are friendly with each other.
