Turn signals — not just a good idea, they’re the law!

by billso on Tuesday, 4 December 2007

One of my favorite blogs is Mod­ern Mechanix, which posts scans of old arti­cles from the Mod­ern Mechanix magazine.

One of Sunday’s entries reprints a 1933 arti­cle on an auto­matic turn-signaling device for auto­mo­biles. If only Amer­i­can auto­mo­biles had such devices installed as stan­dard equip­ment! Turns out some dri­vers are too lazy to use the sig­nal, accord­ing to this 2006 sur­vey. Oth­ers want to add adven­ture to their commute.
