He shook this idea off as absurd, and made the lane switch without the signal, cutting off the little Honda behind him and again nearly causing an accident. I was furious, but in the interest of social nicety and the fact that I was getting a ride from him, I kept my mouth shut.
But three un-signaled turns later I couldn’t contain myself any longer, and finally asked him, “Since you’re one of those bastard SUV drivers that never uses your turn signal, does it make you as angry as it makes the rest of us when a fellow SUV makes turns without their signals?” He said that no, it didn’t bother him, and that he never even thought about it.
Could this be the problem that is plaguing today’s overcrowded roads? That those who make such egregious infringements of safety and courtesy fail to see the fault in their action and therefore are blind to these errors when made by others? Will this cycle of disrespect and disregard bring the ultimate demise of the species?
I heard Fox 5 say something about SUV’s being a key contributor as to why our roads are in horrible condition and why our public transportation is overcrowded, but since http://www.fox5dc.com is the WORST WEBSITE EVER, I can’t find a search to read the article about this. Assholes.
