Turn Signal lady? My rant.
Do they still put turn signals on 2008 Dodge Mini Vans? The answer to this question can be debatable. I can honestly say it drives me crazy when people do not use there turn singals. Have you ever been following a car and reached down to turn the radio station only to look up and have the car in front of you slam on their brakes and turn without a signal? Nothing yanks my chain more! I know this has happened to everyone and maybe you have even done it to someone yourself.
Oh yeah and have you ever had someone follow right on your ass and the only thing in the world that would fix your anger is to slam on your brakes? This usually works for me except the time when it all went wrong and I may of brake checked just a little too hard and maybe a tad too long. That ended up with a trashed backend and a whole lot of hassle and police.
How many times do you have to do something horrible to learn your lesson? How many tragedies will you hear about until you finally decide not to text while driving? I know all this drives me crazy but, I still find myself doing all of this when I am behind the wheel. It is a very hard habit to break and I think the only way I will be able to break it is if I get pulled over for it or I get in a nasty accident. I read a story a few years ago where a group of six teenagers about my age were driving on the freeway and the driver was texting. The group of kids veered over into the lane beside them right under an eighteen wheeled semi. Everyone in the accident was killed on the spot. You would think that this would make me not want to text and drive, but old habits die hard.
