A Friendly Rant About Turn Signals +
posted Mar 14 2013 4:39PM
Turn signals...apparently they're a forgotten accessory. But they're so useful, it boggles the mind. For example, when you're driving on the highway, turn signals are the perfect way to let someone know you're planning to change lanes. And of course when you're executing a turn they're the ideal way to let other drivers in your vicinity know that you're turning as opposed to just sitting there in the middle of the road for no good reason.
OK I'm being a little bit sarcastic here, but come on people, doesn't it drive you crazy when you're on the road and nobody around you seems to know what their turn signals are for? It makes me nuts. You know what's nearly as bad? When someone pulls out of a driveway without looking at all to see if there are any other cars coming. That seems to happen to me all the time. I'm there, tooling along, and suddenly a car swings out in front of me, I'm doing 35-40 mph, someone pulls out right in front of me going 5 mph. Net result? I have to slam on my brakes to keep from rear-ending them. Drives me nuts!!
So when you're out and about, do me and everyone else on the road a favor and please use your signals and look for oncoming traffic. Thanks.
