Please God, will you WAKE PEOPLE UP while they are driving and have them make sure they use their blinkers, especially when they are going to take a left turn? I am freaked out on the road too much!!!
Whenever I drive I keep track of how many people neglect to use their blinkers and it’s always at least a few!
I agree, drivers have gotten a little lazy when it comes to signalling. However it can and does have disasterous consequences!
Wow, I don’t think I’d like to drive where you are! 🙂
For comparison to what happens in ‘my’ S-country*:
On this island, driving customs are explained this way. If someone signals (e.g. a polite german expatriate), it’s setting up an expectation that the signaler is going to SLOW down for a turn. This sets up the adjacent car in the faster lane -who is always looking to be one bumper ahead of the next car- to CUT into the frontal space of this signaler.
End result: The polite german visitor decides to avoid this situation by leaving out signalling on busy streets, and the habit grows.
Perhaps, keeping a suspiciously far distance behind the usual ‘suspect’ helps. Oops, I forgot if the driver behind might start honking.
