Why don't people use their turn signal while driving
« on: November 04, 2012, 08:07:43 am »
I get so frustrated while driving and it is so dangerous I just don't understand why people don't use the. Don't people understand that the turn signal is not for their benefit it's for the people driving around them. Of course you know what you are doing or where you are going but we don't. It is worse when people switch lanes in front of people out of nowhere especially on the freeway. What happens when you cause an accident will you get mad at the other driver when it was your fault. Just curious if your someone who does that what's your logic behind it. It's just a slight move of your hand to be respectful and mindful to the other drivers around you.

Sometimes, people are not paying attention to what they should be doing while driving.  They are usually distracted by something else, either in their minds or something else going on around them, while they are driving.

I'm not sure why they don't, just cause everybody's different! Would be nicer if they did use them. They have them built for the purpose of safty of themself's and other's.  :dontknow:

Laziness, willful ignorance....I could go on, but I just think it is pretty much impossible to describe why people do stupid things and I think this falls into that category.

My guess is the same reason some people leave them on for miles, blink, blink, blink and no turns.

It makes me crazy when people don't use their turn signals. I feel like it is just irresponsible.  It also makes me nervous when people drive with them on and never turn.  Makes me wonder how they don't notice that sound for 10 miles.

Here in Missouri, it's the law.  You have to use your turn signals, you can't stay in the passing lane unless you're passing and you have to wear your seat belt.  But there are still people who ignore those laws just like they do the speed limit.

Dont feel bad I am coming down the road and this idiot pulled out in front of me he didnt stop at his stop sign. If I hadnt been paying attention I would have totalled the truck. If there would have been a car at the stop sign I would have went ahead and hit him. The roads were soaked do to all the rain. My brakes locked.

I really can't stand it when they wait until they get to the intersection before they start signaling....I understand sometimes they might not know where their going to they aren't paying attention...still annoying.

I ask that same question all the time, but I guess they will give a license to anyone these days. :)

        Another kind of driving distracted. These drivers slam on the brakes and then you do not know what they are going to do next!

Yes they cause all kinds of accidents and they deserved to get a upper cut to the face.

They just seem to have their heads up their you know what. Same goes for those who run yellow lights and the worst are those that run red lights and stop signs . Of course they are for those us who do stop. the rest don't seem to care.

Some may not because they may have forgotten in a rush to get over and move on. Some may not because they feel if they do the person will speed up and not let them over. There could be many different reasons.  :dontknow:
