"no turn" signals

i really think that cars should have started out with or need to slowly implement the "no turn" signal for when a car is intending to go straight through an intersection.

under the current system, people assume that no signal means that the driver is intending to go straight. most of the time this is the case, but sometimes you get those drivers who opt not to use their turn signal for one reason or another.

if a "no turn" signal implemented, there'd be less room for interpreation of no signal at all - people's awareness and alertness for when someone is going straight vs. neglecting to use their singal would incrase dramatically. Plus it would give drivers who Hate Dumb Drivers more ammunition of which they can yell indignities either behind the safety of closed windows or as a direct attack towards the driver via an open window.

boy, am i tired.

Ok, wait, would they have to turn on this "no turn" signal? Becausee if they don't use the turn signals now, then why would they use that? I actually do think it's a good idea.

I've also thought (briefly) that they should include a "u-turn" signal. Yeah, you're supposed to use the left. But there are many, many times where I'm making a legal U-turn from an intersection. And the person making a right from the street running perpedicular goes and ahead and makes the right turn. And of course, the intersections aren't normally big enough so the two of us normally make agitated hand gestures at each other until the right turn car goes (no, stupid other driver, I can't go-- you're blocking my f--ing way!). *shrugs*

Good idea, but as my husband jokes, I think turn signal soon be optional (no, please no).
