    Turn Signals

    Let's have a friendly discussion about.......turn signals and changing lanes. Just changing lanes not merging on highways or actual turns.

    What turn signals?

    They're removed (along with the rearview mirrors and cruise control) from vehicles operated in Mississippi.

    Obviously you've never been to Florida. The cars here only have left turn signals though as they never turn off.

    When I see an opening I turn the blinker on and merge my pig over into that spot. Always do it safely with plenty of room. Too many people think they're in a NASCAR race. Usually people in little sports cars that are probably trying to compensate for their lacking manhood.

    Always use them just by habit. Heck I live at the end of a cul de sac and use them to pull in my driveway. Like I said just a very old habit

    To me they show my intent to merge into another lane. However, if traffic doesn't allow me to merge over I cannot just force my way over legally since if an accident occurred I would be at fault not them.

    If I can merge without causing anyone any issue than it is just to show my intent. Otherwise, it is asking for permission if I need to squeeze in.

    HA! I am pretty good at giving a signal as I go into sharp curves. Sadly, I must be daydreaming and therefore a hazard.

    I developed the habit early on, don't know why most can't/won't use them. It takes a whole fraction of a second and 1 millionth of a calorie to do it. If I have an idea of what you are trying to do, I might can miss you, no matter how stupid you may be.
