Ottawa Traffic (Part 3)

Turn Signals.

If your car was built anytime in the last 65 years you're pretty much guaranteed to have signal lights. Apparently, most of the drivers in Ottawa are still on the fence about these new fangled devices or just haven't figured out how to use them.

Honestly, while neither is preferred, I'd rather see a person not signal at all then do the infamous signal while turning. At least when someone doesn't signal at all you can think "maybe they just forgot this time"; but when they signal, while turning, they're showing they know that the signals exist, they just don't know how to use them.

For those who haven't figured it out yet, turn signals are meant to inform other drivers and pedestrians of your intent to turn, not to tell others the direction your tires are currently pointing.
