Does anyone know five functions of the directional alarm? Or the light switch in the car? Or all the different gizmos on the steering wheel?

Google yields no results.

My imaginary children are going to starve!

Red is stop and green is go.
Yellow means go faster.

By the way, don't call them gizmos. That will peg you as a novice. Call them thingamagigs.

See, there you go. Now you're getting too technical. Whatchamcallit should be used only by certified mechanics who work in little towns off the Interstate.

You know what they really like? Turn signals when you don't need them. Try it, and they'll think you've got 60+years experience.

Blue lights behind you means go really, really, really fast.

Remember to drive on parkways and park on driveways.

If you're stopped by a big, burly guy wearing sunglasses and a smokey the bear hat, just tell him, "Go away, jerkwad". That should solve the problem.

If all else fails, remind the cop that you pay his salary.

Speed limits are just a suggestion. At least they are where I live.

I'm sure it will!

In my state, most of the drivers don't stop at stop signs. They slow down marginally and then speed up again. But they don't stop.
