I touched a few sore spots last week when I talked about one of my pet peeves in traffic; I was upset about stopping for folks at crosswalks and then they stand there and wave you through.
I got an e-mail from a listener who has her own personal vexation.
She's tired of drivers who don't use their signal lights. She says, "Some don't bother at all to signal before they change lanes and some just put on their brakes to slow down, then use they signal...doesn't it seem safer to signal and then use the brakes to slow down? That way, they guy behind would know the brakes will be applied soon."
"I get upset when I get no warning," she says. "Now that it's winter and, at times, icy, I don't want to slide into anyone. I do travel a safe distance behind cars but in icy conditions, I would like some notice of a slowing down."
Well, B'ette, you just served notice. Thank you. And safe travels!
