Turn signals, phones ignored

I see these signs, “On Patrol Speed.” Why not cellphones, or turn signals? The cellphone law either has no teeth or no enforcement. I see just as many drivers talking on hand-held cellphones after the law was passed.

Use of turn signals is another matter. In my travels, I would say more than 50 percent of the drivers in Spokane do not use their turn signals when making a turn, changing lanes or entering a freeway on-ramp. For these violations, there should be no warning citations, as the offenders probably do it all the time. Non-use of turn signals is laziness.

Come on, law enforcement, get on the ball and start issuing citations for these violations.

Let’s put up those signs that state “On Patrol Cell Phones,” “On Patrol Turn Signals.”
