One of the nicest things about this bulletin board is the fact that it enables me to broaden my horizons, listening to points of view which are different from my own.
Some months ago, I'd started a thread on the subject of left turns. While I didn't necessarily agree with all of the viewpoints expressed, at least I learned the why of things. Consequently, now when I witness certain behavior, I can now think, "Ohhhh, the driver's acting this way because of thus-and-such..." And it helps. Some of you may find this all exceedingly trivial, but to Southern Californians, who practically LIVE in their cars, it's a big deal.
So guys, explain this other one to me, please-- 'cause lately there's a lot of this going on. What's the rationale behind flicking on the left turn indicator at the last possible moment, instead of signalling in advance? Is this absent-mindedness? A last-minute decision? Or is there some other reason..?
