But you can tell him when you are going to stop or turn by giving him the correct hand signal. You owe him that courtesy and it may save you from a costly rear-end collision. . . Find out if there is a law in your state governing this important driving practice. If there is, learn it today and observe it. If not, follow this simple but wisely accepted system: When you want to stop: Extend your left arm straight out with the palm turned towards the rear. When you arc going to turn left: Extend your left arm straight out with your index finger pointing to the left. When you arc going to turn right: Extend your left arm and beckon to the motorist behind to come ahead and pass you on the left. unce was born to Mr. and Mrs. Keith Parker, 910 Delaware avenue northeast, Tuesday, at the Mercy lospital.
