a study on drivers


The small lever located near the steering wheel that signals to other drivers your direction.
So, dear Mass Drivers- does your blinker deactivate within the city limits of Boston? Are you lane hopping so frequently that you developed repetitive use and can no longer signal? Is there an assumption that since we are all Mass drivers we have intuition about your quick changes from lane to lane.

Is it self fulfilling? Mass drivers have a bad reputation, therefore I will drive like a maniac. Admittedly, it's not hard. There are frequent left hand turns across traffic with no dedicated turning lane, and one does have to get to work. Tailgating becomes unintentional as there is frequent stopping. Not to mention that Boston appears to have been without a city planner when designing the roads. It's a bit of a mess, and I'm navigating City Tiny Car through the mayhem, signalling all the way.
