Malaysian drivers are notorious for not using their car signals on the road. In a very tongue-in-cheek post on their Facebook page, the Persatuan Pengguna Islam Malaysia (PPIM) is encouraging netizens to sign up for a complimentary crash course on how to use their signal.

(Disclaimer: The post is meant as a joke lah)

PPIM wrote, “Don’t know how to use your ‘signal’? Have a hand but don’t know how to move the hand to make the ‘signal’ work? You signalled to the left but moved to the right? Maybe you need to attend this course to re-learn how to signal.”

Whether your vehicle is expensive or affordable, all vehicle types are welcomed, the post added.

The course is apparently open to any Malaysians who are characterised as “lazy to use their hands even though they have hands, regardless of the vehicle” and will educate the general public on the basics of how to use their car signals, how to differentiate between left and right turnings, and how to use their side mirrors.

They even threw in a bonus course on how to identify OKU parking spots!

Jokes aside, Malaysians really should learn to use their signals on the road. Imagine the amount of accidents they could’ve avoided!
