    Do you use your blinkers?

    Who here uses their blinkers when they drive:
    1. In the parking lot?
    2. At a gas station?
    3. When entering/exiting a highway?

    How courteous to and observant of others are you?

    Depends on size of parking lot, traffic & where I'm parking. Up close: Yes... A million miles away: probably No.

    Only if there are other cars around.


    2. At a gas station?
    When turning in off the street - yes. But not on lot of the gas station - no.


    3. When entering/exiting a highway?
    ALWAYS.


    How courteous to and observant of others are you?
    Very courteous of I'm not running late; but if I am - I won't take time to stop and let people out of side streets and stuff like that.

    ALWAYS observant! Have to be to avoid being involved in an accident... there's too many morons driving around that don't pay attention to what they're doing - they can't be bothered with such nonsense when they're talking on their cell phone.. :rolleyes: And yes - it is against the law here - but that doesn't stop people from doing it.

    I'm the same as everyone above. I almost always use my blinker. Not like it does much good as people around here don't pay attention.

    "Politically correct" hasn't meant politically correct, or had anything to do with politics, in years.

    The government forum would be a better place for this thread.

    1. In the parking lot?
    If another car is near.

    2. At a gas station?
    No.

    3. When entering/exiting a highway?
    Always

    How courteous to and observant of others are you?
    Very. You have to be observant. Too many other drivers are not. Courtesy is just as important among people wielding huge blunt pieces of metal as it was among people wielding thin, sharp pieces of metal.

    Always. Failure to indicate a turn or a lane change could be legally detrimental in a fender bender. Yeah, this doesn't belong here. More like Chat.

    Now that I have reached maturity, I just leave one or the other on all the time.

    Funny thing my ol' Grandad said about emergency flashers the first time he saw them.... "Now what are they gonna to do, turn over?

    Re: Do you use your blinkers?

    I use them when turning IF there is someone present to signal to. I feel rather stupid signaling for turns on empty roads with no cars in sight.
    Same thing as at two - three o;clock in the morning out in an area completely
    isolated, desolate, so to speak; it is obvious from the view that there is no one on wither road. What do I see? A Red light. Set there and wait a couple of minutes for it to change to Green? Duh... I stop, look, to see what is already obvious, not a soul in sight ANYWHERE!!! - I proceed.
    I have a Brain - not an empty cavity in my head.

    NOOOOO... they are preparing to take off!!! :D

    Did you hear the results of the Con-Air Airline crash that killed a little over fifty people not long ago? The pilots were conversing in the cockpit, the control tower operator was 'catching up on paper-work' [ummmmm. yeah! :rolleyes: ] the pilots taxied the aircraft to a run-way too short to allow maximum take off roll to become airborne - one pilot remarked when they were quite a ways down the runway and saw no lights in the distance: "not much happening out here tonight", then said set thrust, okay, thrust set, uhhhhhh... couple of short expletives. Then silence. The aircraft ran out of run-way and out into an open field and crashed into a line of trees. Neither pilot survived. So, for one thing, two less, to make the same mistake AGAIN!
    The words were taken from the cock-[pit voice recorder.
    MOST AIRLINE ACCIDENTS ARE DUE TO HUMAN ERROR IN ONE FORM OR ANOTHER.
