This interactional inquiry of civility in traffic focuses on respect. It employs CA to explore how 'thanking’ is generated, and regards the odds between ‘let past’ and ‘let in’, where the latter action has a bigger respect expectation. It locates the controle and esteem of other driver's proffers in the driver-passenger relationship. It uses video recordings of usual car driving pursuits.
