Have I mentioned TURN SIGNALS???!!!!

Me, to idiot:

"Look, it's simple. Turning left? Just move your hand slightly forward of the steering wheel (the big round thing right in front of you) and apply minor pressure downward on the thing sticking out until it clicks. Believe you me, it's not hard.

And get this - it turns itself off! It's amazing, but you've actually shown other people what you were about to do! It's really a win-win. Trust me on this."

Now you've got me started. Round here, the only time most people signal, is if they're in a right/left turn only lane and even then, only when they've already effing well moved over to it. Where else are you going to go, you stupid git? Then, on the rare occasions they do use them, they don't effing well turn them off again. MUPPETS!!!

My husband and I have decided that in California, Signal lights / indicators are an optional extra. Particularly on BMW's and Lexus'

They must be really expensive, because we've hardly seen anyone who has been able to afford them.....

Here, it's the big pickups. I think the rednecks driving them have probably pawned their indicators, for the price of a twelve pack of cheap beer.

There have been a few drivers almost side swipe me and others trying to get into the lane that you're using, as either they don't use their turn signals, are on their cell phones, they don't look, they're stupid or all four.

I've got a little Audi TT........... Apparently it has powers of invisibility.

Given the choice, who would you rather see dragged out of their car and shot at the side of the road?

A) The "driver" who moves from one lane into the next without any form of indication whatsoever (including telepathy/carrier pigeon/osmosis)
or
B) The driver in front of you who keeps braking for what appears to be absolutely no reason (other than possible brain damage)
or
C) The driver in front who refuses to move over to the right lane in order to let you pass (assuming that they are either texting/ignoring you completely/feeding the cat).

As a afterthought, its interesting that in this part of the US, you can put your car practically in the back seat of someone in front and they will move over to let you pass.........but dare to flash your lights and they instantly become very possessive of their immediate location............. .
