Have Too Many Forgotten the Rules of the Road?


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!

    Hello,
    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.
