Turn signals....

....find them.

...embrace them.

...use them.

{please}
AUTOMOBILE DRIVERS Flash Your Turns

    New Model SIMPLEX DIRECTION SIGNAL KIT fits most cars. Gives new safety and comfort when making turns. Eliminates arm signals. Flashing parking and tail lights show other cars which way you’re going to turn. Flashes 60 to 80 times a minute. Works like factory installed models on expensive cars. Does not interfere with operation of present lights. Install it yourself. All parts furnished. For most 1942 to 1949 cars. SPECIFY MAKE AND YEAR. Adaptable to earlier cars at extra cost. MONEY BACK GUARANTEE.




..GRRRR...  I'm just sayin'...

-me, otherwise known as another frustrated I-15 commuter..

Oh, and PS....

....get off your phone and drive...

OK, I feel better.

I'm glad those days are over! But really I wish more people would use them!
As for the phone phanatics, I don't get it!

The cell phones are the things that make me crazy.......

Oh what a new pet peeve was created when cell phones began getting used while driving....and now there's TEXTING wile driving.
I admit, I do talk while driving but rarely. I have SYNC in my car and all controls are on the steering wheel or voice activated.
I get PO'd when folks don't use their turn signals but what really, really bugs me is on the highway. Those idiots that are in the passing lane and don't pass nor get over so you can get around them.
We need to start driving like they do on the Autobahn in Germany...those Germans know how to drive. Left lane is for passing ONLY, then they get back into right lane until they need to pass again...
WOW, what a nerve was hit ;)

ain't for city gals said...

This is a big issue in Arizona....with all of our older snowbirds...they turn them on but they forget to turn them off!! lol..

Way too many people don't use the signals and way too many have a cell phone glued to their ear. We could have a regular rant session I'm sure. I'll bring the apple streudel; you bring the coffee.

That signal wrapped around the gal's hand is a riot! Wonder if anyone ever actually used one. Ha!

I love these clips, especially the one with the signal attached to the hand!
Ming, you're right about the lanes in Germany, we have that here in Switzerland too and it works, the speeds are higher but surprisingly few accidents. Drink driving and using a handy carry huge penalties so the majority of drivers just don't do it. Margaret

And then there is me on I-90 in the morning commute with little miss floozy in front of me putting on her mascara and taking rollers out of her hair as she weaves from lane to lane.... I say a prayer every time I must use I-90 during a morning commute or on Fridays when everyone is heading E. out of town for the weekend. They are insane.

I hate the lack of people not using their turn signals. It's so easy and basic. I use my signal even when no one is around me to see it. Also I believe that 90% of accidents could be avoided if people would just turn their head and look when they change lanes. Their is a blind spot on every car!
