Guys, please tell me you're being facetious. Up here in Canada, 90%+ of drivers always use hand signals, even when their turn signals are working, but especially when parallel parking or backing into a parking spot. Are you trying to tell me that drivers in NY or LA aren't polite enough to do the same?!
Not for nothing, but I kind of suspect that's because that's what he does when he sees someone signalling...A former boss of mine, who used to be in a pit crew for a local SCCA driver back in the mid '80s, told me he never signals when changing lanes as that's a sure sign for the driver behind to speed up and cut him off.

It just occurred to me that the reversing signal changes are doubly bad for Vermont drivers who wish to do a legal Vermont turnaround, which consists of:
* Pull over just past intersection, indicating right turn
* Indicating, reverse into intersection
* Stop, indicate left turn
* Make left turn as normal

I agree with you, I'm just giving you a workaround. It's a stupid decision to not allow a driver to use the turn signal in reverse.Yes, but double-pulling the stalk should not be necessary in the first place. The turning signal should work as normal, whether you be in forward, reverse, neutral, or parking "gear".
Great! I expected that the service center didn't know wth they were talking about.I am not yet on 36.1, and did some testing on my lunch run today from work: A full double-pull of the stalk does properly turn the indicators on in Reverse; both left and right function normally notwithstanding needing two pulls.
I noticed this last night. I thought I was going crazy. Which update changed it? It needs to be fixed soon.
