Most people don't bother to signal but then make up for it by leaving their blinker on for several kilometers on a straight road to average it out. Kind of a turn signal credit like planting a tree for your carbon footprint.

After spending 32 years in a Driver Education program I always use the turn signals. You can't wear them out.

Seems like a turn signal in Utah is just the pre-cursor to you being cut off.

In SE Wisconsin where I live most people still use their signal lights. We were in KY a few weeks ago. Hardly anyone there uses them.

While I have always used them I have noticed that I'm prone to only using it to indicate I about to pass a slower vehicle and then I forget to use them when returning back to a right hand lane. Wonder why? Not that I'm pulling a 30' trailer I am super aware of using my turn signals since my TT & TV take up several car lengths.

I laugh when I see someone driving for miles with their left turn signal on eventually make a right hand turn and still dont turn on their right signal...makes me wonder how they got in that perdiciment in the first place.....

I too have a CDL and always use them regardless of the conditions or move. I think some people think that the turn signal is strictly for use when at a stop sign or left turns into oncoming traffic. Maybe it's a rental and they just turned on the wipers

I still use hand signals too and use them quite often when someone does not use theirs. It's usually the one that indicates they should return to the middle lane!

No turn signal is a peeve of mine and drives me nuts.

I still go to the back of my trailer before every departure to check they work.

Now merging...that's a whole other issue...

It seems that here in B.C. Turn signals and stop signs have become optional. I don't know how I missed the memo?
