Nbr 1.......
Flashing red lght...
fool races right thru does not stop.
Nbr 2..........
Following late  model Corvette that had right turn signal on  for miles.
We come to a major intersection.
Light is green our way........I hold my breath
Sure enough a vehicle pulls out from our right expecting the said Vette to
make a right turn.
Vette misses this vehicle by inches............
We continue on and I,m flashing my high beams at the Vette .
Senior citizens in the Vette wake up and turn thier right turn signal
OFF..............

Senior citizens and/or someone blasting the radio might have
difficulty determining what that beeping is. And given that the damned
thing doesn't engage (at least on my GM product) until a half-mile
after you've turned the signal on, it can be difficult to determine
the "cause and effect" of the beeping, particularly if it's unfamiliar
to you.

Odd, I've never had that problem in the past.

More appropriately, it's the result of more shitty engineering on GM's
part. If the instrument cluster had been illuminated properly, or the
device that automatically deactivates the turn signal as you come out
of the turn was engineered properly, it would not have been an issue.

Maybe Obama'll show 'em how to engineer a car right!
