Default To all the idiot drivers

This is the sequence:

1. *Signal that you are going to turn or change lanes.
2. *Brake or slow down if you need to.
3. *Turn or change lanes.

That is the only sequence; do not alter it, and no steps should be omitted;
it shouldn't be all that hard to remember. *Please get that through your
thick skulls.

It's not necessarily thick skulls. Tradition! Tradition! In Maryland
cars are required to have a flashing light system that is usually
referred to as a turn signal or, more familiarly, a "blinker."
Tradition here dictates that it be activated *after* turning or
changing lanes to signify "I have just made a turn," or "I have just
changed lanes."

Come to think of it, it's a bit like Twitter. First you do it, then you
tell everyone that you did it. Never mind that they saw you do it. In
Maryland you still need that signal *afterward* to say "I did it."

If you see someone here signal before making a move, five will get you
ten it's not a native Marylander.

It's not just Maryland; it's all over the country.

Nowadays, when you signal, that automatically means someone MUST cut
you off. Driving with the proper distance behind a vehicle also
automatically means, "Hey howya doing please jump in front of me and
smoke my brakes." Jenkem poops, I call them.

Some system or another required that I specify my superpower when I
signed up. So I wrote, "I can operate a turn signal."
