Now THAT is a bumper sticker I can get behind (which means it would need to be on my front bumper, and printed in reverse)!

They must've moved there from SC, because I think the percentages are about the same. I started yelling "your turn signal is broken" to people. I've received a few replies telling me I'm number one.

Local instructions for turn signals.

1. Slam on brakes without warning.
2. Begin to turn.
3. Use turn signal.

Maybe it is the 7 years of Chicago living still in my blood but when people do not signal I take it at face value and just go. Often they then turn on the signal and then let me know I also am number one with Backstreets. smile

The problem is that when you don't want to be one of those cretins who doesn't use a turn signal, you know as soon as you turn it on the car driven by the mega-cretin in the other lane will speed up to prevent you from getting over.

My husband is a cop... when he pulls people over for not using a signal, he does one of two things:

1. "So, turn signals weren't an option on your vehicle?" Then waits for them to try and figure out what he just said.

2. "Excuse me... see that sticking out by your steering wheel? Can you press it down. (Then, in a very surprised voice) Ohhhh! So, they do work!"

I use the 1st one as a comment when a car doesn't use their signals.
