Question for people who drive often in a major city

Posted by   + Show Post
When you need to get over do you look to make sure everything is safe and then hit your blinker and get over quickly or do you hit your blinker, look and then get over?

 Hit blinker, then look in mirror, and then look BEHIND me with my head (not trusting only the mirror) and then move over.

I wish I could give out the driver's licenses.  There would be far fewer on the road.  I want to eliminate the texters and tailgaters most of all.

Look, blinker, look, look some more, start easing over, look again, get over, look one more time. :p

Blinker, look and then get over.  

Reason: A lot can change in a nano second and if I have my blinker on before I look than people already know I am about to change lanes so they yeild to me or speed up out of my way. If I look, then put my blinker on and then get over I very well might hit someone or something.

Depends on what city I'm in.... In Dallas I will use a blinker. In New Orleans I won't... in NOLA if you use a blinker people won't let you in lol

This is me, Houston drivers are assholes.

honestly I look first. when I see its clear, then I turn on my blinker and get  over. but people in this city are assholes. if you put your blinker on, they will purposely speed up and get in your way and block you from getting over.

Its just as bad here, thankfully because I took drivers Ed on Houston streets I know how to navigate places like San Antonio.
