A few days ago I was driving north on North Davis Street in Pea Ridge, approaching the intersection with East Pickens (Ark. Hwy. 72 east). A car was coming from the west in old downtown, passing Webb’s Feed and Seed. I assumed that it would be going on east out of town. But suddenly it started turning right onto North Davis Street beside me, and then, its right signal light began flashing. I had some critical thoughts right then, thinking, “Why turn on your signal flashers at all if you are going to wait until you are already turning?” It sure doesn’t help your fellow motorists know your intentions. Signal lights are supposed to courteously inform and warn the other drivers around you, but the message never happens if a driver waits until the last second to turn on the blinkers.
