As commuters, you know that people constantly cut across your path, too often
without signaling. There are a number of intersections on my route that bring out the worst in
drivers... Approaching opposite to me, making left turns without signaling, really dangerously, pulling up to an intersection and making a right turn without signaling.... If you're to their right, you could be squashed. We as bicyclists are dependent on motorists' clear signaling, and I've had it to here with irresponsible drivers. I have adopted a habit that I would like to spread:
Clearly, but not harshly, yell "Directionals!" at these nitwits. Some perceive it as an affront
but compared to what they're doing, it's nothing. Give it a try, fellow commuters, and pass it on!
If serious cyclists start reminding these daydreaming
For the record, my commute is about 14 miles each way, hilly as heck, dense with irresponsible drivers for about half of its distance.
