    Thanks for helping to clear up some questions I had about the left turn signals when highway driving. I did understand how it works basically but was always worried about what if it really is to signal a left turn?

      Yeah, it can be confusing and that’s the best way I have learned how to deal with the passing vs left hand turn situation.

      I had that same doubt as well. Great explanation in the guide, looks like you took a lot of time in putting that all together – thanks.
