Why Don't People Use Their Turn Signals in Florida?

I can't help but notice, as I drive to and from work every day, how people in Florida RARELY use their turn signals. I just don't get it. And half the time I see someone using it, they're not even turning!! lol. Drives me nuts! My husband really gets miffed about this, and the fact that so many drivers seen on the verge of road rage down here. They honk obnoxiously if you don't go the second the light turns green, or, Heaven forbid, you let some poor soul out in front of you! Crazy, people, I guess.

I think this is something happening everywhere. I even saw some cops here that don,t use their signals when they turn. Sometimes I forget (not happening much) and I feel bad when i realise that didnt put my signals. They should give more tickets to those who don,t put their signals

They don't use them in Minnesota either! LOL...your guess is as good as mine if they are going to turn or not....then there is the guy who doesn't know his is still on and you wait for him to turn at each corner.....I can't figure that one out..when they make so much noise when they are blinking!

I notice the opposite out here in CA. I see the blinkers on, but they don't turn. On and on down the street they'll go with that blinker on and never turn!

Its not just there. I live in Pa and people here dont know what a turn signal is! It gets so annoying. We almost rear ended a lady the other day. She stoped and turned without warning! Good thing I was paying attention. Were are the cops when you need them? Cripes!
