    When I let off the accelerator, before I push on the brakes, I just reach up and hit the turn signal. Never had an issue in 14 years. I use MPD push-right angle.

    I agree and probably wouldn't have got them if I had to pay for them myself. Got my doc to write the letter and my private insurance through my employer paid for them, no questions asked.
