You have to signal before you move dumb ass

We’ve all been there, stuck behind a driver who suddenly changes lanes without any warning, leaving us startled and frustrated. It’s a common scenario on the road, and it’s high time we address this issue. Today, we’re talking about the significance of signaling before making a move while driving.



Mirror, Signal, Maneuver:
My driving instructor, Paul, may he rest in peace, always emphasized the importance of the mantra, “Mirror, Signal, Maneuver.” It’s a simple yet crucial rule for safe and considerate driving. Paul taught me that before making any move on the road, you should:

1. Mirror: Check your rearview and side mirrors to assess your surroundings. Ensure there’s a safe gap for your intended maneuver.

2. Signal: Once you’ve verified that it’s safe to proceed, signal your intentions to fellow drivers. This could be changing lanes, turning, or merging onto a highway.

3. Maneuver: Only after signaling should you actually make the move. This sequence of actions not only keeps you safe but also helps create a harmonious traffic flow.



Common Courtesy on the Road:
Driving on the freeway, especially at high speeds, requires a sense of responsibility and courtesy towards fellow drivers. Signaling is a small yet essential part of this equation. It’s not just about following the rules; it’s about ensuring the safety and well-being of everyone on the road.



Addressing the Offenders:
Now, let’s talk about those who often neglect signaling. We’ve all encountered drivers who change lanes abruptly, cut us off, or make unpredictable moves. Tagging these folks, figuratively, of course, is a way to raise awareness about the issue.



To the BMW Douche Bag:
Yes, even you in the BMW, your fancy car comes equipped with turn signals! Using them won’t diminish your status; it will make you a safer and more considerate driver. Remember that we’re all sharing the road, and a little courtesy goes a long way.



In memory of my driving instructor Paul, let’s make it a habit to always signal before we maneuver on the road. It’s not just a rule; it’s a mark of respect for our fellow drivers. So, the next time you’re behind the wheel, remember: Mirror, Signal, Maneuver. It’s a simple mantra that can make our roads safer and more enjoyable for everyone.
