    So, i dont get why people cant use their turn signals anymore. I mean is it that hard to make a concoius decision. Its not like its hard to do. Oh look i wanna turn right, ill just move this little lever(that takes no effort) up! GOD DAMN IT people.

    They have to be concious to make a conscious decision.

    People expect courtesy they aren't willing to show others.

    Straight up dipshits that don't deserve a license.

    I can't see that blinking thing right in front of my face so I'll just keep driving with my blinker on til I get where I'm going.


    Need more? Feelin ya tho. Blinkers are used as technicality to get out of tkt after causing wreck, or as a watch out here I come weapon vs. I need to get over when it's safe. Until people learn how to use them properly I want to use none or use them after I do what I just did or just use them to bluff & confuse without actually changing lanes or use the opposite one but I don't do any of that because that would just be wrong & not help things out wouldn it.

    Not much yet, got a pretty good sound system w/ my custom sub box. Plan on adding more lights & a tool box.
    I always figured that the turn sig lever was an option for them CA drivers around here.:rant:
    Guess I'd better not stereotype, but DAMN, I know that the locals have more consideration than 75% of the CA plate drivers I see.

    I like it when they start the turn, THEN apply the turn sig!

    Believe me I'm not saying I am perfect with them either, but I'm with Ken to where I use mine about 99% of the time. Followed this ass yesterday for about 10 miles with about 6 turns, only used it once. Wanted to put the push bar to its proper use!

    They don't use them out here in SC either.... scumbags. And following people who don't turn them off :rant: or don't use them at all :rant:
    I'm with you guys - how freaking hard is it to push a little lever to let other people know where you are going


    I won't use mine when I'm the only one on the road... why bother, no one is going to see it anyway :D Other than that, I'm with you guys 99% of the time I use mine

    Yeah.. I came to florida used to people using them as a "Look out- I'm merging this way" to people not using them at all. And I prefer them not using them at all...Keeps me on my toes and constantly thinking "What is this ass going to do to damage my car/kill me??"

    And I've found I've become a better thinking/safer driver...

    Perhaps because the phone is glued to one hand and the butt or Big Mac is glued to the other.

    Or it's because when they use them to tell other people what they're going to do, the other people speed up to cut them off. I've had it happen many times.

    That being said, I still use them 100% of the time. Even if nobody is around. Every time. That way, if anything happens and they ask me, did you use your signals, I can say, with a goddamn doubt that yes, I signaled.

    If someone wants to cut me off...my bumper will take a hell of a lot less damage than the nose of their car sliding under it.

    I love those people who already make the turn - into a different lane - and THEN they put their signal on.

    HELLO???

    I could've put the blinker on FOR THEM. :rolleyes:

    I hate people for not using their blinkers, but what about those people that use their blinkers and take 100 to 200 yards to actually make the damn turn? Or they forget they put their turn signals on and keep them on for miles at a time. Sheesh.

    Doesn't it sadden you when the person not using their turn signals is another Tacoma driver?

    There is nothing that pisses me off more than that man. Especially when they just cut right in front of you and get pissed at you cause you were magically supposed to know what they are thinking.

    I'll take that over no blinkers at all.

    I use my blinkers all the time, even in parking lots... well, ok, I don't use then off-road but maybe I should so the raccoons will get out of my way :confused:
