Why in the first place do people change lanes or filter out without using that stalk behind the steering wheel which has 2 arrows on it, one left, one right? Well, one can deduce that they may be stupid. Or two, they just can't be bothered because they feel that other drivers have to look out for them instead of them taking the responsibility of their own cars and their own lives in fact. This has been a problem on many roads, not just ours, for eons now and such people still exist. As one of our fellow bloggers on myautoblog coined it, it really is a part of motoring hell.. I've been trying not to write about this point for quite a while now hoping that there will be some drivers here who can change my mind about the situation at hand, but to no avail. A car just squeezed into what would seem like the length of a Perodua Kelisa, right in front of me on an expressway despite the ample room behind me which the driver could have waited just a second longer to change lanes. Are we Singaporeans really that busy? Is there no time to spare to accommodate for safe and considerate driving?
So please, this is an appeal to all drivers who read this blog and this article.. use that signal stalk of yours! It'll make driving slightly more pleasant on our already terrorized roads.
