Hello, I'm Russ VanAllen (As if you didn't know). I'm always one of those "look for the good in people" type of person (Yeah...not really.), but I'm always shocked that the majority of lives in this world are incapable of doing even the most minute and simplest of things. To explain, I'm going to force all my readers into the Russ VanAllen School of Driving (We'll talk about the fee after...). Today's lesson will be an emphasis on turns and how to execute them correctly and is entitled...Turns, and how to execute them correctly...Part 1 (Ahem...). In this first part we will be discussing how to let people know you are turning. I know this seems like a novel concept. I mean, you'd think they'd install something on your car that would allow you to do this so you don't just suddenly slow down and impede those behind you...well, they do (Shocker...). It's called a blinker, or sometimes even a turn signal. Located to the left of the steering column (At least in America, I don't know about England, or even Canada for that Mounties have blinkers on their horses?), the blinker can signal vehicles behind you, letting them know "Hey I'm turning". Now, you may be asking "Are these a new thing?" Well, surprisingly no, they've been around for a while. So, you know...USE THEM!!! It's called common courtesy people (I never thought I would see the day when I am the only person alive who understands common courtesy...what is going on!)!

Stay tuned tomorrow for Part 2...I know, I got lazy...

  1. Ah! So I'm not the only one wondering if other drivers know about that! I thought maybe it was a GR thing...they just don't know about that invention here.
