Blinker Morons

weather: sunny
outside: 22.9°C
mood: ...
Dear Auto Manufacturers,


Please invent an automatic signal disabling feature. This feature will detect that the goddamned blinker is still on and disengage it after a reasonable, arbitrary distance of travel where the steering wheel has not turned past the turn signal cancellation point.

Please make it standard on all vehicles.

Thank you,

          — J. Lin.

Did you know that today is International Everybody-Forget-To-Turn-Off-Your-Fracking-Blinker Day?

Nobody told me that either. I saw no less than three of them. Two left ones and one right one. It figures. The left blinkie ones are more annoying.

It's either they signal without turning or turn/change lanes without signalling.

... What the HELL is WRONG with people?!?!?!

I'm responding from Kent, WA and I TOTALLY FRIGGING AGREE!!!! There were two specific vehicles that immediately come to mind from our drive down. Each of them drove for MILES without turning off the signal. MILES! Do they not realize that you can just hold it up there for the few seconds it takes to change lanes and then let go, thereby NOT blinking any longer? I'm guessing NOT. And then there was this total DOOFUS who just wandered over into my lane, seemingly not even looking, and no signal at all. When I passed him a little bit further down the road I discovered his reason - he was busy TALKING ON HIS CELL PHONE!!!

So yes, I totally agree with you. Either they're too stupid to remember what that thing is on the left side of their steering wheel or they can't remember to turn the frelling thing off. :P

The left blinkie ones are more annoying.

Now I wonder if UK drivers would disagree on that point? Hmmm.

As it stands, I'm still only whizzing around on my bike when on the roads, and so the left blinkies leave me in a perpetual state of fear as I scream up behind them on the left.

Are they turning? Do they see me?
(Answers - 1. maaaaaybe, and 2. of course not.)

Sheesh.
