It's that little stick to the left of the steering column. I'm not sure why cars meant for sale in Delaware are even outfitted with them by the manufacturers. They would save money if they considered them optional equipment, as do so many Delaware drivers do with using them.

Didn't use his turn signal.

Police code for "our informant told us to look for his car".
