No Turn Signal Zombies

 

It is not unusual several times each day to be driving and notice someone making a turn without using a turn signal. To most people this is not something that would typically send them over the edge, but I see through the eyes of the driver committing the offense as one who cares very little about others around him or her. To simply reach over with a finger to turn on a right or left turn signal to let people behind them know they are turning is both a simple curtesy and actually a law. So what is it that exists in the hearts of these driving zombies that compels them to not think about others sharing the road with them. They took the same driving test that all of us have taken and know that they must signal when turning yet they refuse to do it. This should be an automatic reaction when preparing to turn either right or left. If one is not capable of this simple act they are simply assholes.

    Agreed…. i believe i usually witness this in conjunction with holding a cell phone while talking or texting. Its called self importance and im waiting for it to be classified as a new disease and a new criminal defense like affluenza.

    Lol….I understand completely!! It’s sad how little people care about anything but themselves. But I got one better…those that don’t turn them off. I almost got in an accident with one. They had their signal on and I almost pulled out of the intersection because I thought they were turning. Needless to say I’m glad l looked a second time.

    Agree! I can’t stand it when someone has on their signal, yet goes in a whole other direction than what they were signaling. It is very dangerous, and not just for other drivers, but for those crossing the roads as well. You see someone with their left or right blinker on and you head across the street and BAM! Road kill, because they intended to go straight the whole time. Sad selfish world we are in.
