"Smart" car? Stupid driver!

This morning, on the way to the bank and hardware store, I happened to spy a Smart car coming out of Riverside Park. The driver made an un-signaled turn out of the park into traffic, then an un-signaled lane change in front of a much larger car, and finally yet another un-signaled lane change into the southbound left turn lane at the White St. light..

After attaining the left turn lane, the driver turned on a turn signal. A RIGHT turn signal.

There was a "Coexist" bumper sticker on the back. The driver turned out to be a short-haired female of perhaps 30 years. From the vehicle and the sticker, I can probably be safe in surmising the presence of a liberal, most likely a registered Demonrat Osama supporter.

How does one become an adult without knowing when and which way to flip the turn signal stalk in a car? For that matter, how does one survive to early middle age and still be stupid enough to purchase an overgrown roller skate to drive in traffic?
