LA Woman Uses Turn Signals, Stops At Stop Signs, Given Key To City

Los Angeles, CA – Wednesday
By Joshua Mauldin

37-year-old attorney, Myra Filiman, was given the key to the city of Los Angeles this morning for adhering to basic driving etiquette during a three-month, city-wide surveillance period.

“Operation: What’s This Asshole Doing?” was a program initiated by the Los Angeles Department of Motor Vehicles to monitor Southern California motorists’ driving habits in the hopes of better understanding the causes behind its nation-leading amount of traffic accidents and moving violations.

“Instead of changing lanes in an unannounced haste, forcing everyone behind her to slam on their brakes, Myra used her turn signals to calmly inform drivers of her intent,” said Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. “The turn signal bar is located on the right side of the steering wheel. When you press it up or down, lights on either the right or left side of your car flicker. We’d like to see everyone use these at least once in the next week.”

Though confused by the honor, Ms. Filiman credits her success to years of dedicated yoga and being from Minnesota.
