Why Turn Signals Don't Work.....

Don't you find it irritating when drivers don't use their turn signals? I always figured it was because they considered themselves to be supreme beings who owned the road and weren't required to share their driving intentions with us mere mortals, and that I should consider myself privileged to even be allowed to use a portion of THEIR road.

Les Jones has found out the true story:

"Like me, you probably thought your car's blinkers were solid state. Not true! It turns out that they require blinker fluid. Most people don't realize that, so once their cars run out of blinker fluid they can turn their blinkers on, but nothing will happen on the outside of the car. (The little arrows on the dashboard still flash, because they don't use blinker fluid.)

This definitely explains why you see so few cars using their blinkers, doesn't it? Otherwise, you'd have to believe that lots of people don't know how to drive."

I'm glad that's cleared up.......

Yeah, these are the same dullards that don't know that as a car gets older, the compression goes away, and the only way you can get it back is to pour a new can of compression down thru the carb every 500 miles.

'Splains the boneheads that just can't seem to find the gas pedal, but I know they're trying, it's just that they forgot that last re-fill of compression.

And here all this time I thought that it was because they were too weak & puny to operate that big heavy ol' lever!!!
