Blinker - A device that blinks, esp. a vehicle's turn signal.
These are those little flashy lights on the front and rear of your car that let people know when you're about to cut them off. I'm no saint, and don't always use these little warning contraptions, but I always try to do it when there is heavy traffic or if I'm less than a couple hundred feet from any other vehicles. How about some of you learn that, eh?
Rear-view mirrors - A rear-view mirror is a mirror in automobiles and other vehicles, designed to allow the driver to see rearward through the vehicle's backlight (rear windshield or windscreen).
How about looking up into this magic mirror to see the line of cars your holding up so you can get over out of the way, or hit that thing we call a gas pedal to go faster? Okay.
Side-view mirrors - A wing mirror (also fender mirror, door mirror, or side mirror) is a mirror found on the exterior of motor vehicles for the purposes of helping the driver see areas behind and to the sides of the vehicle, outside of the driver's peripheral vision (in the 'blind spot').
Yes, these are to be looked into before yanking your car over into the opposite lane and A.) Cutting someone off or B.) Running them off of the road. Just like a rear-view mirror, these are also very helpful to see approaching vehicles or the line of vehicles you're holding up, so you know to get out of the way.
Steering wheel - A wheel that a driver rotates in order to steer a vehicle.
The big round thing directly in front of you that you control with your hands. This thing controls your wheels, and when turned, will help you get out of everyone's way.
Speed limit - The maximum speed at which a vehicle may legally travel on a particular stretch of road.
So, speed limits are to be followed...according to the law. When on a roadway of any kind, the speed limit is determined by the people around you. Especially on an interstate. This is why there are multiple lanes, because of the large volume of other travelers. This is also why the speed limit is higher, many people trying to get somewhere at a faster rate of speed than using slow speed back roads. Again, if you're holding up traffic, no matter what your speed, move out of the dang way!
Police Officer - A policeman or policewoman.
These are any Patrol, State Troopers, DTF or Law Enforcement personnel that are placed on the roadways to enforce the law. They are sneaky and I understand that you don't want to get pulled over. That's why they make a slow lane. There is no need to slam brakes and nose-dive almost causing a pile-up. These officers should pull your dumb driving self over for doing such a thing. Simply let off the gas and get over. There's no need to stay in the fast lane if you insist on going below the speed limit just because you saw a cop. Yes? Yes.
Turning lane - A turning lane is a lane reserved for turning vehicles.
This is really unrelated to interstate driving, but this is also something that really chafes my hide. If there are normal driving lanes, then there is a lane designated specifically for turning vehicles, please, PLEASE tell me why people insisting on stopping in the middle of the normal driving lane like idiots when making a turn?! There's a turning lane there for a reason. USE IT!
Pretty self explanatory. And no, I do not need to go to therapy for road rage. People need to learn how to drive.
Now, pass it on!
