shirts in windows

Whenever you are driving on a highway you are bound to see a car abandoned on the side of the road with a shirt or a bag hanging out the window. What the hell does that mean? Is that something you learn in driver's ed because I don't ever recall "hang shirt from window when in distress." It can only mean one of two things, "don't tow my car, I am coming back for it", or "I surrender and I am leaving this piece of shit here!" Two very different meanings huh? Where does one get this information?

  1. "It is a uniform symbol throughout the US now that if the vehicle is disabled to display something white so that passing motorists, tow trucks, police knows that your car is disabled so help can be dispatched to your location.

    It is usually displayed by hanging from the drivers side of the car or tied to the antenna."
