    Sure, I Have Them, and It Makes Perfect Sense to Use Them.

    But as there are idiots doing other things than paying attention behind the wheel, those that may not understand the laws of physics,  those who have difficulty grasping cause-and-effect relationships, and those who just should have stayed at home... well I look out for...

    Yes I Do and Am Frustrated ...

    Yes I do and am frustrated as hell at people who dont. Have we really become that lazy in this country where we cant reach across ourselves to buckle up or flip a lever a half inch one way or the other to signal a turn. And don't even start on the lack of chivalry and politeness...

    I find this experience funny

    as hell LMFAO xD I only use it when a car is about thirty feet behind me or in front of me, any car past thirty feet will NEVER see me signal. If i'm making a right turn or a left turn (on a one way street) then I always signal or i'm changing lanes or merging on or off the...

    I Use My Turn Signal I Think Everyone Should

    I use my turn signal yes I do! I hate to get behind someone who doesn't! I also hate it when you give your signal to change lanes and the car in the lane next to you decides to speed up and not let you over! Drives me nuts! Would they rather you cut them off and not give a signal...

    Why Wouldn't You?

    It's really not that hard.  All you have to do is push the little lever up or down.  It takes like a millisecond.  So why don't people do it???

    Turn Signals

    I use mine and would appreciate it if you would use yours too. Also, in case you didn't know. The proper way to use them is before you hit the brake. They are meant to warn people that you are going to stop or slow down. We don't want to know which way you are going after you...

    Get Off The Road!

    Number one pet peeve, bad drivers. People that park just to make a right hand turn, people that drive under the speed limit, people who can't delegate the lanes they NEED to be in and end up cuttin everyone off because they fail to plan ahead, and of course, people that don't use...

    Massachusetts, The Land Where No One Uses A Turn Signal

    I live in Massachusetts, and it absolutely drives me crazy when people do not use their signals. Why people can be so rude is beyond me. There is one particular intersection where people look like they are going straight, so I wait until they move. They invariably go left and...

    Sometimes Too Much

    I have used my turn signal when there is absolutely NO one behind me. No one awake to see that i am making a turn. Put it on when i am in a lane that HAS to turn.  I think it is better to overuse it then not use it enough. Sometimes it can be really dangerous when you don't...

    For Safety

    They made turn signals for safety, and therefore I use them. It's part of the law, and I intend to follow it.

    If We All Used Our Turn Signals ...
