    So today I go and buy my new trailer, 18ft landscape trailer w/ split gates, brakes, new wheels and tires. I went mowing today and my brakes were graping alot so i finished mowing them went on a country rd and adjust my brakes. I get them adjust, and then started heading towards my shop to unload the equipment. Then while at a stop sign, there is this car with there hazards on, but from my point it looks like a right turn signal so I start to go and then rammed into my trailer. What a day...

    I feel for you. I don't know if I would be mad or sick! Hopefully it didn't get too much damage.

    Sorry about your day but, don't ever trust turn signals. They really mean "WATCH ME" whether it was a turn signal or hazards, don't trust them.
    I was checking on my new trailer last week when someone almost ran me over. I pulled out of the shop area onto a road and went about 100 ft. I turned my left signal on and attempted to turn when I heard a horn and screeching brakes.
    Some idiot in a VW Jetta went flying around me as I started to turn, he/she was going against a double yellow too. Dang! I almost had a new truck but, my instinct was to jerk the wheel away!

    Yea turn signals can't trust them, Today I turned my turn signals on early by mistake I thought I was coming up on the road I thought I had to turn on and some lady almost pulled out in front of me.
