    One of My Pet Peeves

    Ahhhh!  This annoys me so much no matter where I am.  I don't care if its in a small town or heavy traffic city.  You have to ALWAYS use your turn signals.  I dont' know this bothers me so much.  It just does.  Its inconsiderate to the drivers...

    Pet Peeve

    I reckon I can put "people who don't use turn signals" under pet peeves because it bothers the **** out of me.  That stick that clicks on the left side of your steering wheel?  Yeah, tap it down--see?  It says you're gonna go LEFT.  Now, knock it up...

    I Don'T Know Why It'S The Law If It'S Not Going To Be Enforced.

    As a pedestrian I find it very helpful to know if drivers are turning or not. It can even be to the driver's advantage as I will often yield to turning cars if there are only a few of them. But If they don't signal I can only assume they are going to go straight. Also drivers...

    WTF

    What do you think they were made for? So that you couldn't use them? The purpose of them is to prevent accidents. So do yourself and everyone else a favor and ******* use them.

    blinkers blinkers blinkers!!

    I can't imagine getting a drivers license without having to use turn signals for the exam. Then what? They think they're so special that they don't have to after that?  It irritates me to no end when somebody turns in front of me when not using a turn signal. This can...

    Turn Signals

    It drives me up the walls, when they don't use the turn signals (flashers) or for example: They are turning right, and use the left one instead or vice-versa.

    On the Road

    My mother has the worst road rage. Its actually quite funny at times because she gets all wound up especally when people turn into a lane at the last minute. My mom gets histerical and beeps the horn while yelling at the car infront of her. I think the best time was on the...

    People Should Realise That ...

    People should realise that the world isn't theirs to do with as they please and let the others be damned. Besides, when U drive, you should be wary of other drivers skills more than yours. You always know how well U drive, but never how well they drive...

    Ignorance

    I was behind this girl (not woman because she was young) for a couple turns after getting off the expressway. First turn, no blinker. Ok coo. Second turn, no blinker. I'm headed to a family members house and we where going the same way apparently. Then the girl stops in the...

    Laziness=rudeness

     I don't just dislike it when persons are inconsiderate in not using the turn signal, I also dislike persons who drive lazy, they drive 10mph under the speed limit but will disregard the stop sign, they will stop in the middle of the street and hold up traffic to see if they...

    Sorry Mate, I Didn't See You!

    I hate these people, nearly as much as I hate, those who do use turn signals, but only after they have started to turn. In England, we have a "Highway Code" which every driver, signs agreement (to acknowledge,that they have read, understood  and will practice) to...

    Ugh. There is this intersection I have to cross

    to go home from my bus stop, and every day there's so many people turning left who don't even signal it. I even yelled a few times "Use your blinkers!". I think it's because the street ahead of them is a one-way street and it's a slight left turn, but it's STILL A LEFT TURN...

    It Can Hurt Innocent People

    This happened to me in february. I was on my way home from having lunch with a couple friends, and because of somebody not using their turn signal, I got into a pretty bad accident. I had my friend with me on the back of my motorcycle. We were on a 2-lane road that is legal to...

    Turn Signals

    My best buddy never uses his signals either. He tells me that they do not always turn off after using them and then a few minutes later he feels like an idiot going down the road with his signal still on. Yhe other thing he says which I do agree with him about is that they are...

    To Turn Or Not to Turn

    I hate it when people don't use turn signals!!! This is definitely one of my pet peeves. I don't drive much any more (only when I rent a car), but when I was driving all the time....oh this irked me to the max!! Now that I'm an avid pedestrian, I find it STILL irks me. So many...

    So Annoying!

    Come on people - it's not that hard. You move your hand slightly and flick the lever to let us know what you're doing. The indicator is your friend! It's a handy little device, and it stops people(myself included) ramming into you. What's not to like?

    Failure To Use Turn Signals Is Also Communicating Something.

    We all share ownership of the road (those of us who pay taxes anyway). Drivers who do not use their turn signals give me the impression that they are inconsiderate, irresponsible and/or thoughtless. From my earliest days of driving at 17 years old, I have always used turn signals...

    I have a question: Which is more annoying,

    people failing to signal when they're changing lanes, or people that forget that their blinker is on (and you keep waiting for them to turn or change lanes)? I've actually kind of gotten used to people not using their turn signal (as in my expectations are so low that it's a...
