Pet Peeve: Not Using Turn Signals

Q. I read last month’s submission by Dennis from Louisiana and your response to him. I have to tell you that drivers not using their turn signals is a pet peeve of mine. It happens way too often, is inconsiderate, and, most importantly as you pointed out, way too dangerous! I thought you might like to see this short video of a TV news report identifying just how serious a matter it is: . Please continue bringing this issue up on a regular basis. Maybe you can have an impact on your readership.

Lazy Drivers: Turn Signals

Q. On my way to work this morning, actually every morning, I can’t help but wonder why drivers fail to use their turn signals. What really got me to write to you is that I spotted two school buses (one making a lane change and the other making a turn at an intersection) failing to use their turn signals. What’s going on here? I’m sure this lazy attitude towards using signals result in accidents. Is there a rule about use of turn signals?
