Not if you're attempting a reverse turn with a trailer or caravan. I

Nope, senile idiot! It's TROLL's stuff! As someone in another ng mentioned
yesterday, the clinically insane Scottish attention whore posted the very

There are these things called mirrors that don't require you to look
over your shoulder.


Even better: the little TV camera built into the rear of some modern
cars which outputs a display to the car's computer screen.


My new car has one of those.


Does it display it in mirror language so you're used to the output like a mirror? If not I can imagine people turning the wrong way.

It comes in very handy to make sure I don't
run over the damn cat. For an animal supposed to be cleanly he loves to
roll in the driveway dirt.


Cats are the dirtiest creatures on the planet, despite the myth. They don't bathe, they just lick, which doesn't remove fleas for example. Imagine if instead of taking a bath or shower, you just licked your finger and rubbed it on your skin. Apart from taking 100 times longer, it would be 100 times less effective.

I'm surprised your cat doesn't run off when it hears the engine. Every cat I've owned/known/seen is scared ****less of engines, especially when mine was sleeping in the actual engine bay when I started it. It's lucky it wasn't in contact with the belts.

My father was a concert pianist. He was being given a lift by another
pianist. Dad knew the way and was giving verbal instructions. Every
time he said left or right he noticed a definite hesitation on the
part of the driver. Then he had an idea and, instead of "turn left" he
said "turn bass" and instead of "right", "treble". He said it worked a
treat!


Good idea!

I've never understood people not remembering which is left and right. Anyone who can write must know which hand they use? And assuming they're right handed, write, right, easy!

Which people say "left hand down"? How is it used in practice?

I have never heard that phrase.


If someone is directing you to reverse your car into a tight space.

The only thing I can think of is from the old days. There was a time when drivers used hand signals to signal
left, right, or stop with their left hands. That might still be legal but I don't remember anyone using them.


Not only are hand signals still legal, but a road test examiner may ask you to at least
demonstrate one or more signal or recognize one or more signal as part of the test.

Keep in mind that drivers are required to signal their intention to turn, slow or stop.
If that can't be accomplished with vehicle's equipment, then hand signals must be used.
Not just legal, but the law.

Some people say that you should use hand signals in bright sunlight, bumper to bumper
traffic and any other situation where your turn signals might be hard to see.

Kids should be taught to use hand signals while they are riding a bicycle as soon as
they are proficient/confident enough to ride with one hand. You might be surprised to
hear that the NHTSA adds a 4th hand signal for bicyclists (Alternative Right Turn) and
also allows either arm to be used for slowing or stopping.

https://www.nhtsa.gov/staticfiles/nt...andSignals.pdf


Very stupid to use any of those, since most people will misunderstand them.

Let's look at your list.... "right turn" - on a bike, I stick my right arm straight out. If I stuck my left arm out and put the forearm up, people would think I meant "stop".

There's apparently some stupid one in a car where you rotate your hand to mean you're turning the opposite way to the side your hand is on (since you can't reach right across the car). I would take that to mean "please pass"

Dunno, hard to see that unless you mean say the military during WW2 etc.

There was a time when drivers used hand signals
to signal left, right, or stop with their left hands.


Nope, with their right hands, Britain is right hand
drive and that phrase doesnt appear to be that
common outside right hand drive countrys.

And there was no down involved. There was a way to
indicate a left turn by the driver in a right hand drive
car but I cant remember what what it was. Hand moving
downward indicated slowing down before lights were
common.

That might still be legal


Yeah, it is still used by bicycle riders.

but I don't remember anyone using them.


I did see it very rarely indeed in my early days
and still see it quite a bit with bicycle riders.


Eh? Cyclists just stick one arm straight out in the direction they're going. Anything else would bre ambiguous.

That reminds me of the first time I ever saw someone tell us to slow down. He had his hand palm down, and was lowering it repeatedly. We realised later he was informing us of an accident up ahead. But both me and my friend who was driving were trying to figure out what was left open, thinking he meant the boot (trunk) was up in the air.

I was on holiday and parked in a layby with poor visibility (blind bend behind me). As I began reversing out, a German tourist simply raised one finger. I took this to mean "you're ok to go", and continued, then slammed on the brakes as a bus came round the corner. Apparently Germans don't bother using the whole hand to mean stop.

Mate of mine tried to indicate to me that there were cops up ahead
in the garage sale run. I didnt have a ****ing clue what he was trying
to indicate when he waved his arm around outside the window.

He's the bugger who refuses to use a mobile phone. The
rest of us warn each other about cops using the phone.

No, it's just a camera. I always bacl into parking spaces if possible
and other than the cat all I use it for is to see the concrete stops
that are usually too narrow to see in the mirrors.

Cats are the dirtiest creatures on the planet, despite the myth. They
don't bathe, they just lick, which doesn't remove fleas for example.
Imagine if instead of taking a bath or shower, you just licked your

The cat has been curious when I'm washing my face at the bathroom sink.
I've offered to scrub him down but he isn't interested.

A couple of weeks ago he managed to be in the wrong place at the wrong
time and I dripped some Spectracide (weed and grass killer) on his butt.
He definitely didn't appreciate being held under the lawn spigot.

I'm surprised your cat doesn't run off when it hears the engine. Every
cat I've owned/known/seen is scared ****less of engines, especially when
mine was sleeping in the actual engine bay when I started it. It's
lucky it wasn't in contact with the belts.


The cat doesn't mind the car or motorcycle. In fact he appears from
someplace when I drive in. He'll lounge around on the lawn while I
mowing until I get too close and then he'll go wherever he goes. He's
back when the engine stops.

Nope, senile idiot! It's TROLL's stuff! As someone in another ng mentioned
yesterday, the clinically insane Scottish attention whore posted the very
same question already in 2017! He does that time and again. The poor swine
just can't get enough attention! Even posts the same questions separately
to separate ngs, just so he can get more threads and more attention out of
the same "questions" he keeps asking. BG

The only thing I can think of is from the old days. There was a time
when drivers used hand signals to signal
left, right, or stop with their left hands. That might still be legal
but I don't remember anyone using them.


Not only are hand signals still legal, but a road test examiner may
ask you to at least
demonstrate one or more signal or recognize one or more signal as part
of the test.

Keep in mind that drivers are required to signal their intention to
turn, slow or stop.
If that can't be accomplished with vehicle's equipment, then hand
signals must be used.
Not just legal, but the law.

Some people say that you should use hand signals in bright sunlight,
bumper to bumper
traffic and any other situation where your turn signals might be hard
to see.

Kids should be taught to use hand signals while they are riding a
bicycle as soon as
they are proficient/confident enough to ride with one hand. You might
be surprised to
hear that the NHTSA adds a 4th hand signal for bicyclists (Alternative
Right Turn) and
also allows either arm to be used for slowing or stopping.

https://www.nhtsa.gov/staticfiles/nt...andSignals.pdf


Very stupid to use any of those, since most people will misunderstand them.

Let's look at your list.... "right turn" - on a bike, I stick my right
arm straight out.* If I stuck my left arm out and put the forearm up,
people would think I meant "stop".

There's apparently some stupid one in a car where you rotate your hand
to mean you're turning the opposite way to the side your hand is on
(since you can't reach right across the car).* I would take that to mean
"please pass"


You rotate your hand anticlockwise. For slowing down (aka "please pass")
you flap your hand up and down.

Not if you're attempting a reverse turn with a trailer or caravan. I
have a story about that but I won't bore you with the details other

I don't understand the problem reversing a trailer or caravan. Everyone could turn the trailer themselves if they had a hold of the towball end. So if you're reversing the car, you look over your shoulder, and move it the same way!

Of course I looked it up on google.

It stuck in my mind for some reason. I also remember that my fifth-grade

That's not the problem. The problem is that with small trailers
they are very sensitive to the movement of the steering wheel
and often not even visible when backing with the trailer empty.

Senile Rodent: "Obvious lie. You hairy legged cross dressers are so inbred
that you all have two heads."

Birdbrain: "You're the one that likes hairy legs remember?"

Senile Rodent: "The problem isnt the hairy legs, it's the gross inbreeding
that
produces two headed unemployables like you."

Birdbrain: "So why did you mention hairy legs?"

Senile Rodent: "Because that's what those who arent actually stupid enough
to shave their legs have."

Birdbrain: "You only have hairy legs if both of the following are true:
1) You're quite far back on the evolutionary scale.
2) You haven't learned what a razor is for."

Senile Rodent: "Only a terminal ****wit or a woman shaves their legs."

Birdbrain: "There is literally zero point in having hair all over your
body."

Senile Rodent: "There is even less point in wasting your time changing what
you are born with."
