That Lever Has A Purpose

 One of my pet peeves is people who don't use or misuse their turn signals. I hate it when someone in front of me slams on their brakes to make a turn without signaling, or turns on their signals only once they're already into the turn. That's what they're for,  to warn other drivers that you're going to turn and allow them to slow down before you slam on the brakes. That lever has a purpose besides being a place to hang your beer opener.

I may be a little anal about turn signals. I use them when no one is around. For example: 2AM. Just so I don't forget to use them when needed.

My Theorys:<br />
1,)Turn signals are a very expensive and unpopular option for giant Pick-ups/SUVs as I rarely see them used in these vehicles.<br />
2.) You would have to pry the cellphone from your ear for 2 seconds to move that little lever thingy!!!!

This is a bad problem where I live. Most people don't use their turn signals and most that do don't use them properly. Ugh.

Yes, I live in a small town. But it's the law, and more importantly common courtesy for other drivers.
