or whats worse is if they actually do singal a turn, slow down...then take a half hour to acually turn...no cars coming...no red lights....just driving with mrs daisy and here u come fast & furious behind them thinkin' its gonna take them 2 secs to turn and they take 5 mins.....you have to slow down cuz u can't go around cuz cars are coming and so u juz wait for them to turn causing u to loose speed {sometimes come to a complete stop} and start all over again......

...ok done with the random rant for the night.... lol

Its rare that I will change lanes without signaling, but thats if im the only one on the road. Else I use it all the time. There were many instances where I nearly got into an accedent because the other driver failed to signal their intention, or say you are just in front of an intersection ready to turn, and this creep comes up and makes a turn without signaling when you could have turned in front of him and never have been in his way. Thats one of my biggest peeves. That and almost getting hit because an idiot was looking down on his cell phone while dailing a number. After honking the horn, he made too much correction moving into the OTHER lane and overreacted. God Almighty help us all...

I always signal, its just habbit, hell sometimes ill even accidently signal even if the only place the road leads is into a turn. The one thing i do that always drives people nuts is i always use up to parking spaces, even if they are the only 2 left, ive had this car for over a year now but i just cant help it, im a crappy parker i guess.
