Letter: Where have turn signals, complete stops gone?

To the editor:

Where have all the blinkers gone (turn signals)? Countless times I have had to swerve or apply my brakes to avoid a collision, because someone failed to signal. Wherein lies the difficulty of utilizing our turn signals?

Also, how about obeying stop signs. S-T-O-P spells "stop," which means "cease motion." Here again I have had near-collisions due to someone failing to stop. Assuming it is safe to roll-through a stop sign is not enough; we must stop in order to ensure safety. Has our culture become so hectic and rushed that we no longer have 15-20 seconds to stop and look for crossing traffic?

I also find myself making mistakes on the road, but we must all try harder to make driving safer. Here's to driving safer, and safer roads for all of us!

I do think that people are completely lacking in the whole paying attention department. The whole failing to signal thing I think some models don't come with them LOL (sarcasm) and the last time we were in town almost got plowed by 2 motorcycles who thought I guess as individuals the stop sign didnt apply to them. I think a stop light is really in order for the main intersection someone is really going to hurt someone. Oh and one more thing as far as not paying attention if you illegally box us in and your radiator gets punctured by the trailer hitch that serves you right.

if you or any driver has to swerve or slam on the brakes to avoing the car in front of you, then you are either driving too fast, or too close to the vehicle in front of you. if you hit the person in front of you, then you are at fault.

I always find the stream of beer cans and bottles along the roads here annoying.
People seem to be in a rush also.Cool, drunken people driving fast.
Ahh the sweet sounds of loud exhaust on pickups combined with loud boom boom stereos in young punks cars. Yep here in Williams theres so much to love.
AWW common im trying to keep it light for the few young people here who havent left.

I think turn signals on cars are an optional feature now!
