    Its Saturday So I Don't Need To Use My Turn Signal

    1c3535c64381d9529e9d1ea26aef0a4f.jpgJust blowing off steam after seeing entirely too many selfish bad drivers today, many neglecting to use their turn signals as they dart around freeway lanes or make turns from surface streets. images-6.jpeg

    I don't think there are 3 people in Kalifornia other than me that even know what that lever does...

    An then there's the one who bumps the lever and never shuts it off. Then suddenly decides the car is telling 'em to turn an they do. Right into you.
    Maybe it will get better when the self driving units are about. In the interim I avoid high density routes, just too many folks behind the wheel theses days increasing the odds of finding the select few Clowns who who just shouldn't be there. I am not convinced that California is the sole source of this issue. One of my cross country jaunts had me feeling the worst roads and drivers were around Washington DC.

    Seriously, this is one of my biggest peeves about other drivers. Face it, most people in cars are little more than misguided missile operators! m.

    I don't give a darn about the turns signals. Compared to texting while you drive it is nothing. I see a lot of people looking at the screen instead of out the windshield. I wish they would make the punishment as severe as drunk driving. At least a drunk is looking out the window trying to see where to go, unless it is a drunk texting while he drives. What should the punishment for that be?

    I think the problem Is when drivers signal a lane change now the [email protected] drivers in the new lane you want to change into move up and close the space. So people have given up signaling.

    All this time we been calling then things 'lectric hand wavers. Never use e'm 'cause the seem so impersonal compared to waving . For most people we wave with all the fingers, for others just one.

    It's hard to use those darn flashing things when you're talking on the phone, eating fried chicken, drinking a beer and driving with your knee!
