Gods, this burns my butt! Why don't people use the turn signals anymore? And from what I saw this morning, it's men - usually in big-ass trucks or SUV's*. Oh, is a turn signal too girly for you to use? Or can't you hold the "Big Gulp" from 7-11, steer, talk on your cell phone and flip me off while using your turn signal? Of course that's it - men truly can't do more than one thing at a time. And don't get me started on the "Big men in big trucks equals a tiny penis" theory. I haven't done research, but it does appear to be true when I mention it. At least, that's what I assume when I tell men my theory. They haven't shown me anything to indicate that it's wrong......
And when did speed limits become a suggestion rather than the law? I don't drive super fast because I am never going someplace that I really am that much of a hurry to get to, but I drive 5-7 miles over the speed limit most of the time (mostly to keep up with traffic). But these monster trucks come flying up on me and zip around me like I wasn't even moving.
When did defensive driving because offensive driving?
* This was from my own survey from driving in yesterday morning and today. Men don't buy trucks with turn signals any more. It's sad - the passing of an era.
