If your instructor looks like anything like my new avatar, I think he's telling you stop.

Coincidentally it's the most important signal to agree upon.

Lol, thanks for the morning laugh to get my day started. You are correct though that it is vitally important both of you need to know what the stop signal is!

Best movie ever!

Where have I seen this? The other thing is that even if the signal is recognized what has to be done then, HIT BRAKE! and clutch

Team America.

And first hit clutch, then brake. Remember, if you hit the brake before hitting the clutch you risk stalling the vehicle. This of course applies only when you're traveling at idle speeds (like when you're backing).

Definitely one of my favorite funny movies of all time. I tried to find a truck driving related gif but everything I downloaded wouldn't upload to photo bucket. The file sizes were too big, according to the inter webs. So, I came across this guy giving the signal, laughed for an hour about it, then tried to see if it would work and BAM! Hilariousness for all. I want to start quoting stuff from this movie but it wouldn't be appropriate. NSFW either.

Happy Monday Everyone!
