Texting while driving, dangerous lane changes and accidents — Indiana State Police trooper John Perrine has likely seen everything in his work on the highway. But he recently made a DIY PSA for a simple driving behavior we take for granted: using our turn signals.
The tongue-in-cheek spot praises a common feature found in every car. “To the left side of your steering wheel there’s this stick that comes out, and it’s pretty incredible,” Perrine says in the video. “It’s called a turn signal.”
He details the ‘amazing’ features of the signal, and then reminds us more seriously why signals are important.
“This is not only the right thing to do, it’s not only against the law not to use it, but it’s the courteous thing to do. It’s going to help people around you understand your indication that you’re going to make a lane movement or a turn,” he says. “So please use your turn signal.”
Watch the hilarious spot…
