Attention drivers: your turn signal does not entitle you to change lanes. It is for warning only. Should a driver whose lane you are attempting to enter not heed your desire, your turn signal does not automatically justify you shoving your car between two others who are unprepared for your injection into their lane.
Also, please note that turning on your signal at the exact moment you change lanes does not count. If your method of changing lanes goes something like the following, you need to re-evaluate your lane changing method:
lane change desire manifests itself>
look for openings in between cars>
there are none>
and . . . SIGNAL|LANE CHANGE!
In other words, if your signal blinks, like, ONE time between the time you decide to change lanes and the actual event of changing lanes, you, sir, are a bastard.
