I Think The Blinking Lights Are Pretty, But Get Out Of My Way Already
Odd Jakarta Fact #671:Motorcycles, public transport and pickups use hand signals before turning, whether or not the turning sign light works. In most cases the light works but only becomes some sort of decorative element, blinking away even though on the highway; and in other cases they simply don’t work – with motorcycles, most often all the lights don’t work anyway. Most often, the hand signals are used at the instant the vehicle is turning right or left, and not before. There are cases where feet are used instead of hands for the signals.For the aforementioned vehicles, the usage of the turning sign on other vehicles i.e. cars, other buses, is also treated as a decorative element and wholly disregarded until the vehicle actually does turn. At this point said motorcycle, pickup or public transport will honk their horns generously.
