Have been driving for 60 years. Do not remember anyone using the 2 blinks of left turn signal.

But with the older cars before computers several blinks often meant you still had your signal flashing from the last turn you made.

I have had truckers flash their headlights when I am passing with a trailer in tow to let me know it was safe to pull back into the right lane. Not sure I would even trust that in today's world.

Well you drivers who close up and tailgate but don’t pass, or tailgate 2 or 3 tailgaters thereby creating a 400 ft long parade no one can pass should quit that habit. There eventually is an impatient driver who chances it and goofs it and there is braking and evasive manoeuvers that are totally unnecessary.


Sheeple.

Sheeple with ‘magnetic bumper syndrome’, even on a multi lane highway they slide right up the back of the car ahead and just sit there, far too close for highway speed. They won’t pass even with nothing in the left lane. Just drive along mesmerized by the back of the next car.


You got that right.

Makes driving so much easier, just take short glances away from the phone and let others determine speed and direction. About as close as you can get to self driving vehicles.

Lynnmor, that is so true, although I don't text and drive. We have a a couple of new cars with the technology including distance control, lane control, side mirror warnings, etc. I let the cruise determine our speed compared to the car in front of me.

Even the Prevost will limit my distance. I like the new techy stuff.

What do most do when the car in front of you puts on a right turn signal? I think most everybody looks at the left lane, prepares to pass.
Mostly I drive about 60. Most cars can gain speed from 60 so I take no action, other than crowd the right when no yellow line. A truck, OTOH, when I can see far enough, I will right signal, tap brake. When the truck steps to left I will brake, then flash headlight to signal back in.

About 25 years age we were in Texas on a 2 lane road where the shoulder was as wide as a driving lane. They never used a turn signal, but would slow a little and pull onto the shoulder and let you pass. That’s the only place I’ve seen it done but it was nice to see people can be polite and help others and get nothing in return.
For those on here who are getting angry about someone doing this might want to take a look at themselves and figure out what is wrong with there own attitude.
