Use Your Damn Signal Light!
I am far from political, but I have an idea that could reduce taxes, automobile accidents and close the national deficit. I know that some politician is going to come by and steal my brainstorm but you can tell them you saw it here first. Tell them that your ole pal, Linda, came up with it.
Here's a follow up to the blog I wrote about the stick on the left side of your steering wheel. You know, the one that when you push it up or down, it alerts those driving near you what direction you are planning on turning. As I stated in my previous writing on the subject. Such information could be quite useful and help prevent accidents.
My husband and I were having a discussion about this very subject, and we came up with this brilliant idea. It is a pet peeve that we share. While he points out that it is always a New York driver that does not use their directional, I quickly remind him that I am a New Yorker, and I use mine. I am also quick to point out that in my observation of driving in both states of New York and Connecticut, New Yorkers and Nutmeggers are just about equal in their use of the stick in question.
Ready? Since it is a ticketable offense to change lanes, or make a turn without using your signal light, how about those who fail to do so? Ready? Here it is: Get ticketed?
I'm sort of stuck right there because, really, what else is there to say?
