I saw this pop up a few days ago, seems like an interesting idea, but it definitely needs refinement.

Yeah, I thought about that, but you show the other side of your hand for that.

But hey, 2 outta 3 ain't bad (Or so some old lady told me once).

Those vid clips were awesome....I lol'd.

They forgot one important signal though...the one to use when some idiot driver does something truly disturbing, causing a near-death experience for you. while the cause can vary, the proper signal to use does not...
