You have got to remember most truckers do not like the class a drivers because you are out there with a operators license and not a CDL with a Air Brake endorsement.

>>>most truckers do not like the class a drivers<<<

Well, I'm not too crazy about them either, when they decide to drag race at 56 mph, while traffic is just piling up behind 'em.

My ICC switch is beyond my arm's reach without leaning forward to get to it, so I just momentarily flick my bright beam lever.

...Most of those responding to this thread seem to think flashing your high/low beams is the correct procedure for indicating a pass or being passed. I too, use to believe this was the proper way of doing things.....that is till about 5 years ago when I read right here on this very forum that moreover, momentarily turning your headlights off then on is much more appropriate....


Back in the day, when trucks and cars were supposed to go the same speed, I would turn my headlights off/then on to let a passing trucker/trailer/rv know he was in front of me. However, in today's world of automatic headlights, not all makes/models allow you turn lights off/on now (ie Toyota, GM, etc...), so flashing the highbeams is all you have (if you happen to be going slower in a car/pu/suv).

I would also think that the ICC button on the smart wheel is meant for just that, indicating to someone passing that they have cleared you, and it was safe to move over. If it does not flash lights that the passing driver can see, then I would change it so that it would blink the headlights too. I would prefer that than to temporarily flashing highbeams.

I will give a hi-beam flash to let someone in...when they let me in, I use my 4-way flashers. (Neither my bus nor my box truck at work have a way to flash just the ICC lights.) In my Magnum, I'll flash the hi-beams during the day...at night, I'll usually flash the fog lights.

NOW I know what ICC means.
I have been trying to find out what ICC meant for a month. I labeled my side parking lights switch as ICC by mistake.
Now I know that the ICC switch is a momentary toggle switch and will (for me)flash the clearance lights. I just tried it and it works. Yeah!
Thanks for the thread.

p.s. many of the icons on my switches do not match what the switch does.

Ok, I am ignorant as to what ICC Lights are. Any clues? Thanks.

My ICC light switch does different things depending on whether I have my lights on or not:

With lights off (daytime) it flashes the headlights, tail lights and side marker lights. (Has no effect on clearance lights)

With lights on (night time) it flashes OFF the front and rear clearance lights. (Has no effect on headlights or tail lights)

I know what "ICC" lights are and use them. But what is "ICC" short for? I was scanning the posts and couldn't find the answer as I may be the only one that doesn't know. Probably when I find out I will feel like an idiot that I had to ask.

OK, now I don't feel like an idiot? Never would have thought that's what they stand for.
