People of cleveland please read,1st learn how to use a signal especially if you are turning into a parking lot or onto a road if someone is wanting to pull out.2nd dont slam on your brakes when approaching a red light a mile away from the car in front of you that causes wrecks even if the person behind you is not tail gating you it can still cause a chain reaction wreck due to the person thats behind the person behind you just might be tailgating them and hit the car in front of it.3rd slower traffic belongs in the right lane,this pertains to highway driving and as well as city driving.If you are not running with the flow of traffic the only reason you should get over in the left lane is if you are going to turn left within the next half mile or so.4thif you must talk on your cell phone while driving pay attention to the road and use your mirrors and signals before a lane change just because you are on the phone doesnt give you the right to cut people off or to drive 20 mph under the speed limit because your mind is on your conversation.Keep these little tips in mind and it will keep road rage and wrecks down and we will all be just a little safer

A huge amen... I've been to a lot of places and this could hold true for most of them.

I would like to add one, if I may. If you're on a divided highway, and you want to turn left using the 'middle' lane, then please - for the love of Pete - pull into that lane first and THEN slam on your brakes. I don't know how many times I had to go around someone who had half their car in the left lane and the other half in the turn lane.

Oh wait - I need one more. If you're going to turn right at a red light and there's no sign that says you can't, would you please turn right already??!!

got a suggestion....why don't you drive your car and I'll drive mine.....the only thing you can be sure of when you see someone with a turn signal on is that the turn signal works....I would not trust the fact that if a driver has their turn signal on they are in fact going to turn....

drive by you proved a point you are one of the people that cant drive due to distractions and that is why you were offended.the use of signals is to let people know what you are going to do that means dont just slam your brakes on and turn the proper way to use a signal is first chose the direction you want to go next turn it to that direction third and most important turn your signal on a good 1000ft before your turn comes up so people behind you know what you are doing.if you need help on driving lessons im available anytime after 5 on weekdays just post on here you need the help and i will come to you first lesson free others are 50.00 an hour

I gotta agree with this. There are a ton of people who have been T-boned because they assumed the driver was turning. Usually an old man or woman who cant hear. But I do scream every time I have to slam on my breaks because you didn't find it necessary to warn anyone of your intentions.

Keith St scares the crap out of me. The speed limit is 45...you have two cars blocking/leading the pack doing 35 and one ass running 50 with nowhere to go! Heading south you have the post office...who the hell decided that was a good place for the post office?

oh, and I'm the one who slows down way before the light because I just seen the person behind me texting and I don't want them to hit me.

Just wanted to add a couple of my leaves.. If I am at the traffic light ( let's say Candies lane and 25th street ) and I am going straight or turning right, the car across from me is turning left. When the light turns green believe it or not folks (that means all you dumbasses turning left!!), I have the right of way wether I am going straight or turning right, I have the right of way. This scenario happens at way too many Cleveland traffic lights. And one more thing since the season is upon us, if you come across a yard sale sign, for God's sake don't slam on your brakes or slow down to a crawl to get a better look!! Find a safe place to pullover just be careful for the jackass across from you turning left, he may think he has the right of way...
