WOW - Man charged with trying to run down jogger (Read 1232 times)


Needs more cowbell!

    +1.  Point left with left arm, right with right arm.  Hard to misinterpret.

     

    Exactly.  I assume everyone else on the road is a moron.  3/4 of the time I'm probably correct.

    I shoot pretty things! ~

      I think that Goofy right turn signal is for the scooters and stuff with a hand clutch/gearshift, not sure if that is the case here, but was back in India (where a variation of this is the left turn signal - make circles with the extended right arm)

        +1.  Point left with left arm, right with right arm.  Hard to misinterpret.

         

        That's what I think.  And, yes, the left hand signals were devised for cars, before they all had signals.  Somewhat archaic, and understood by few drivers.

         

        p.s.  The reason I often don't signal when riding my bike is that I tend to be braking just when a signal would be appropriate.

        Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

          I always tell people the easiest way for me to remember the hand signals is to think of it like the turn signal in your car. You push UP on the handle to turn right, when using hand signals your arm is pointing UP for a right turn.

           

          Edit: Not sure if that works in countries that drive on the left side of the road...

            I think it's safest to wave both arms and hands wildly to indicate that you are about to do something.

                Most effective when wielding a visible weapon on aforementioned arms and hands.

                It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.

                  Well, when a couple buffoons decided to try and run at me with their pickup AND assault me with a paintball gun while I was running, the chunk of broken concrete I was wielding when they were dumb enough to make a second pass did work quite well.
