So it was you that yelled at me Dan!!

Not really but,

I dont have signal's, Well I do, but my signal arm stripped the little screw that goes in the cam gear.
So I use hand signals always.
The other day some guy was on my rear, I had my arm out the window full length signaling a left turn. (a good 2 and half to 3 feet of arm). Guy almost clips my rear end then he proceds to yell at me use your ------ signals you ---hole and proceded on his way. Made me mad I wanted to break my foot off in his you know where LOL.

Anyways since when did people forget about hand signals? I've always got people going straight infront of me while im turning left at 4 way stops another big peeve, usually thats when I show em the finger and yell like theres no tomorrow.

Even tho at the time being I have no lighted signals, I do take the time and also the elements (rain, cold, snow yea right) , driving around with my window down doing hand signals.

Last time I took my dmv written drivers test it had hand signals as a question. I've had police officers behind me before while I'm using hand signals they don't seem to mind. in fact i think they are happy that I take the time to actually point to where I'm going.

Glad I don't live in L.A. or The Big Apple now thats some traffic.

Just a little rant about the idiotic drivers around here.

Nah, Elky, it wasn't me. Hand signals would be a lost art in out area..lol. I have asked people turning into parking lot drives, while I waited to get out, not using their signal, "I guess those new [insert vehicle they are driving] don't come with turn signals this year"? Dirty looks are usually the answer. Dan

The car manufacturers have spent millions if not billions of dollars designing the little stick coming out form the side of the steering column and they do expect you to use it and you would be surprised at how many do not seem to know what that item is for, at least it appears that way as every day I see people zip in and out of traffic without using them flashy things. In all seriousness make sure that your flasher system is in good condition. If the cam in the column needs to be replaced, the hardest part is removing the steering wheel. Walk around you car on a regular basis just to check all of your lights. The police will give you a ticket for failure to signal and for bulbs that are burnt out.

Drive Safe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My theory is if Hot Rodders follow the rules of driving the sport will be around a long time. If we draw attention to ourselves by breakin' the rules, we may all lose the right to build kewl cars....

Another reason to signal and have all bulbs working.
If you are pulled over for one of these reasons they are also going to ask what flavor beer you are drinking and what's that you're smoking.
