As I went to get out of the car, the buzzer sounded.  It was

those two simultaneous directional arrows, which I had not
noticed before at such junctures.  Any ideas about this?

It is possible I guess.  I checked to see whether it was in

left again but maybe I'd better go check....

I must have just not noticed that before, but it seems pretty
noticeable.  Odd.
