    the guy in front of you doesn't cancel his turn signal at the traffic light??

    You're sitting at a traffic light.. behind a guy, or pehaps surrounded by folks, in the inside lane of a double left lane only turn.. and they keep their lights blinking the whole time!!

    OK already..

    I KNOW you're turning..

    Cancel your damn turn signal!!

    I especially hate this at night.. there's enough lights out there already.. I don't need yours blinking on and off for the next two minutes.. :steamed:





    I hate that almost as much as the driver who's can't figure out that the light has turned green, and it's his turn to go!!




    Or the guy who loves his radio station SOOOOO much that he wants to be sure EVERYBODY can hear it!!




    Anybody else have any pet peeves they need to get off their chest for the New Year??

    I got pulled over a while back because one of my headlights had burned out. During the stop, I also got a lecture for not using my turn signal when I was in the left turn lane (just before I got pulled over).

    I HATE it when someone is making a lane change, moving left and they "float over" nice and slow. Just riding the line, nice and easy. UGH!!!!

    Did you ask the Officer to "caption it"?



    (sorry, had to do it)

    Ummmm what? I've never even heard of "cancelling" your signal. I leave it on until I complete my turn, just like the rest of the sane world. I think you're losing it buddy....:faint: :)

    In my state it's the law to use your turn signal!!! They are strict about it!

    I pull up in my truck till the bumpers almost touch.It blocks the flashing/blinding light.
    The fault lies with the car makers.They are making the lights brighter every year.

    Whenever someone does something that annoys me in traffic, I just like to think that I'm doing some little thing I may not even be aware of that annoys someone else. Then I smile.

    I do something different. If I am stopped in a turn lane and everyone knows it, I will leave the blinker OFF until the light turns green and then put on just as a quick courtesy.

    If I am driving an official vehicle, then I always use it to set a good example.

    I guess it depends on the state. But I thought being in a turn lane was a good enough indicator that you are about to turn. I use my signal to signal moving into a turn lane but not while in the turn lane. Not that I give a rat's *** what anyone else does with their turn signal.

    I do this too if I know it's going to be a long light and I don't feel like hearing it click for 2-3 minutes.

    Also the type that will end up getting his *** beat (or worse) one day when he accidentally taps bumpers with the wrong person.
