    Is it me or has anybody else notice that people now a days don't make a left turn like they are supposed to

    I see people on side streets just make a angle when making a left and at lights they don't yield anymore to oncoming traffic

    I swear I have been almost hit head on from people turning left onto streets

    Also auto makers could just quit putting turn signals on cars, and pass that small savings on to the consumer.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    This y I wave one anyone at a 3 or 4 way stop. It's pretty pathetic really. I think we r ready for cars that drive themselves.

    I don't know where you live, but if they try that in nyc, they are getting t-boned. On the other hand, when it comes to right turn, idiot drivers never yield the right of way to pedestrians, sometimes I feel like to throw a rock at their car when the idiots shoot it pass me when I'm crossing the side walk. I don't know what's so hard about stopping for couple seconds and let the pedestrians go. Although I got my license and dont have a car yet, I will always yield the right of way to pedestrians when making right turns and stop completely behind white lines behind stop signs and let pedestrians go first when I get my whip.

    The problem is local municipalities have decided to put yeild signs in for right hand turns resulting in people not knowing which person has the right of way.

    Supposedly when routes are looped it is done to eliminate left hand turns. lol. My loop was a counter clockwise loop full of left hand turns at busy intersections. But UPS logistics does plan routes for other companies and for them the left turns are mostly eliminated. They just are unable to do it for their own trucks.

    See it everyday, its as though they think they have the right of way. I believe its still the law that you must yield to oncoming traffic if your making a left hand turn in an intersection.

    Almost took out 2 Harleys today that decided when the left turn arrow was red that meant keep going.

    I've never made a left hand turn in all my life.
    For safety's sake, I just keep making rights.

    Drivers in the general public suck. They are not superhero drivers like us.

    This is why car manufacturers keep coming up with technology to make up for the lack of skill and attention so prevalent with non-professional drivers these days.
