Thread: Do you use your blinker?

    Default Do you use your blinker?
    I remember discussing this with my dad when I first got my licence.

    Do you use your blinker while turning into your driveway?

    Not should you, but do you?

    in my driveway sometimes, but the street i live on, there are hardly any other cars on the street at the same time.

    As for blinkers in general yes I use them, and what pisses me off the most is most drivers dont

    I do if there is a car behind me.I live on a quiet street with not much traffic. If there are other drivers around, I am considerate and use signals. Lots of others a-holes dont and that pisseses me off. What pissess me off more is when people smoke in their car but they flick the ashes and throw the cigarette out the window. Use the damn ash tray!

    I live on a Cal de sac (God, forgive that spelling, I legitimately have no idea), so no...

    I do use my blinker when turning, however. Uno mas ticket and me has no mas license.

    EDIT: Not to be "that" kid, but 200th!

    I live in a rather uppity neighborhood so I usually do but sometimes I don't just to mess with some of the guys behind me. Depends on how close the guy is on my bumper, and some of them Jags can almost slide under my Jeep. seen one do it last time it snowed, tore his hood all up, but didnt hurt my axle. My grand cherokee has a 6" lift kit and 35" tires.

    But when driving on the road, away from the house I always use them. The one thing that really torques me is some idiot trying to play NASCAR driver and draft 10 feet from me or a truck driver (Big Rigs) Come on guys if you can't see his mirror you are hamburger if he hits his brakes because chances are he can't see you.

    I usually do if I'm turning into a driveway. Otherwise, I always do. I like to use it in the case of an accident, so witnesses might be able to say I had my blinker on. Also, it just makes sense to use it.

    I do, because I'm a learner... Haha my instructor or parents always make me use it, probably even when I don't need to...

    I hate to say it but NEVER! according to most driving games (you see THEM blinking?) it causes drag and loss in concentration. I need to get round that corner FAST and away from the heat.

    I also have the same policy about brakes, headlights, using the clutch and stopping.

    I would if I lived on a street with any sort of traffic, but I live on a small cul-de-sac with only 9 homes. There is rarely another car on the road at the same time.

    Drivers who don't use them tick me off, especially when I stop at roundabout, then they turn, wasting my TIME

    I have my driving test on Monday.

    Its hotwired into my brain that I use my turn signal every single time, everywhere I go. I also wear my seatbelt every single time. My mom, amd sister both live in my same neighborhood, and I dont even have to get on a main road, and i use my seatbelt to even go the 300 feet to mom's.
    Do you all wear seatbelts? Sometomes, all the time, or click it, and slide the shoulder strap behind you like I see peeps do?

    sometimes but if there is nobody to indicate to that i'm turning or changing lanes than no point. i never signal into my driveway cuz its a back alley thats usually dead to traffic.
