More things to watch for when I take over…..

Starting close to home, freeway wise.

All buyers of new BMW, Lexus, Mercedes Benz, Porsche and other similar high end cars will be required to take two classes before they can accept delivery of their shiny new examples of conspicuous consumption.

Class #1. Wherein the new owner operators will learn both how to recognize and when to use the turn signal lever to allow others in adjoining lanes to receive at least a brief warning when they are about to get cut off, or when they will need to make a  skidding emergency stop to avoid a collision with the above described trust fund baby.

Sure, it really looks simple, but………

Class #2. How to find and what to look for in that thing that’s mounted outside the doors, and the other one that’s in the center of the windshield (To the Brits, the windscreen), often these are called rear view mirrors.

What’s behind you is in your past, and perhaps your future as well…..

I used to be amazed that such expensive cars didn’t have any signals and mirrors installed straightaway from the factory. A closer inspection revealed that they did indeed have them, but the drivers had no clue as to what they were or what they were for.

Expect some changes….

If only they had used that black thing just outside the window…..

By the way…..

Anyone foolish enough to buy an Audi is exempt from the above classes, no amount of teaching is going to improve that lot.

    For the sake of my sanity while traveling the highways and byways, I do hope you take over soon. Very soon.

    Jerry,

    I was behind a BMW on the expressway the other day. You will be happy to hear it had it’s left turn signal on:
    – in the left hand lane
    – doing 60 MPH in a 70 MPH zone
    – for 7 miles
