Human Etiquette (or, The Art of not Being a Dick)

Driving Etiquette, Lesson #1

If you want to change a lane, here is what you do.

Step 1. Signal you wish to turn. But stay in your lane.

Step 2. Check your mirrors to be sure you’re not going to make anyone slow down with your crossing and especially, that you won’t crash into anyone.

Step 3. Change lane quickly and safely.

Step 4. Turn the signal off.

Addendum: If you wish to cross several lanes, perform steps 1 to 3 for the first lane and then repeat steps 1 to 3 for every subsequent lane.

Important notes: DO NOT cross without signalling. DO NOT perform these steps out of order. DO NOT skip any of these steps. DO NOT use someone else’s sense of self preservation against them.
