Sgt. 'Snark'

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — An Indiana State Police officer is going viral for sharing a nifty little gadget sure to improve your driving experience… and everyone else’s!

“If you look at your steering wheel here, to the left side of it is this stick that sticks out,” ISP Sgt. John Perrine said. “It’s pretty incredible. It’s called a turn signal! It may require you to put down your coffee or your cell phone or whatever you have in your hands to drive safely.”

He introduces the turn signal like it’s a new gadget.

At the end of the video, Perrine points out using your turn signal isn’t just the legal thing to do, it’s the courteous thing to do.

Using it seems to make other drivers far less hostile.

Perrine is well known for his extensive emoji usage on Twitter. You can follow him @ISPIndianapolis to check out his creative and informative tweets.

    The drivers in Pennsylvania aren’t intelligent enough to turn their lights on when it’s raining. BTW if your wiper is on your lights should be on,it’s the law

    Police in Indiana use turn signals, obey the rules of the road…damn what’s wrong with the rest of the LEOs? LEOs speed excessively, never use a turn signal, ride up your rear end to get you to move over so they can fly past you (if they were on their way to a call lights would be on especially on the interstate!).

    Positively true…Every vehicle has them. Not for looks! Use the gosh dang things.
    “U” cut someone off without using them and get frustrated at the person “u” cut off.
