    What about turning left?

    Mentioning hand signals - when I took my driving test, you still had to do hand signals. Anybody remember them?
    I still occasionally use hand signals when I turn right into our drive or similar scenarios when I've indicated to pass a line of parked cars and then need to additionally turn right into a drive etc.

    I still use the straight ahead signal at a particular junction near me, and when traffic's being directed by police.

    I don't care about that because they aren't overtaking me on the side I am turning towards.

    I do wish people wouldn't indicate to pass a parked vehicle: it's not like it adds any useful information. In fact, y closest brush with the grim reaper came because of someone indicating in those circs and someone starting to reverse out of their drive because they thought driver 1 was turning right. Driver 1 stopped and suddenly my descent of Kippax Hill was blocked.

  6. I mean double awesome. That would also help remove the sub-awesome people from this forum.

  7. That one is really bad. It seems closest to this


    which is a sign directing drivers to move to the right of it. An arrow like that could have the opposite effect as intended.

    ...and deliberately make them really slow when they reach 2 years old?

    Don't they already? And what does "lubricating the chain" mean? ;)

    I thought about it a while back. I have some ideas but I'm not sure how it can be done from the engineering side.
    I know signaling can be useful specially at night/ short winter days.

    How do you know?
  12. No it can’t but I’d be interested in your views as to why it is?

    Have you thought about why every previous incarnation of this idea has failed?

  14. ...or for that matter, read this thread detailing many of the reasons?

    Have you ever heard of Blaze? The laser TFL. has installed on lots of Santander bikes (formerly AKA. Boris bikes).
    I'm curious about your thoughts on that product.
