Re: Turn Signals vs. Hand Signals

So... is it ok to use your passenger to signal right turn with their right arm? Or should you use your left arm the textbook way ?? People might think you are deflecting air into the cab when signaling left turn...when I am by myself I usually signal right turn with my right arm, even in my fordor.....
