on my first trip in the United States,a "native" friend explained,that upon observing a automobile with just one headlight,the driver is entitled to a kiss from the passenger.This procedure/concept is called "pedidle".
My question is:Who,what when and how..........???

Your friend has something wrong, or maybe he just wanted to kiss. A "pediddle" is an auto
with one headlight out. Alternate to "pediddle" is "petissle".

Padiddle - 60s slang
A word "called" by someone that has just seen a car with one headlight. The caller then receives a kiss from the person of their choice.

It's true... it's true.
