Signaling? You mean having the break-even level of courtesy that gives the guy you're cutting off the chance to compensate for your arbitrary drift? Don't be silly, everyone here has makeup to apply and texts to send and burgers to eat.
Yes, with the caveat that if there's absolutely no other traffic or pedestrians to see me do it, then possibly not.
I pretty much always do. On my motorcycles 100% of the time, don't even care if the road is empty, it's just habit and muscle memory to, just like checking over my shoulder instead of only using mirror.
In cars, if the road is totally empty, I generally still do even on empty roads. Especially in my Tesla, since it's autopilot will change lanes for me if I hit the turn signal.
Yes, it drives me cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs when people just drift over in front of me.
The world knows to get out of my way.
Yes I do.
I drive a truck that weighs 12,000 lbs., so I drive like everyone else's life depends on it.
But I live in South Florida, so it's me and like maybe two other people.
Always. But law in my country says it is not required after overtaking, when I am returning to my lane, so I skip it most often.
Always, when it matters.
ALWAYS! Few things pi$$ me off more. Except people using the passing lane as their personal driving lane.
Yeah, I always have. But now, with my Tesla, the signal is how I change lanes, since I'm virtually always in autopilot on multi-lane highways.
Always and when I say always I mean always... It drives me nuts to see drivers who thinks you can read minds.
I'm fresh out of driving school, if anything I stick to rules and regulations and tempo limits too much judging by my fellow motorists...
I've started casually keeping track of how many actually signal & it's about 20%, the other 80% just switch lanes with no indication, sometimes abruptly so!
of course I'm commenting only about my area, within about 15 miles distance from home
My pet peeve is people who don't signal. As if there is so much effort to flick the turn signal switch. Like I know when somebody is going to change lanes or turn. I own an insurance agency and failure to signal is one of the Top 10 reasons for car accidents for all car insurance companies.
The reason is because they're on the phone.
That's not a joke, it's the reality of it. One hand isn't free to signal, because they're holding their phone. No one uses bluetooth apparently!
Sounds like Phoenix, too.
I love the idiots who as soon as they get on the freeway, feel the need to zip across three lanes over to the fast lane, then they settle in nice and comfortable at a slower speed than the other lanes they just left. Nothing like a pace car in the passing lane.
If there are other cars within a hundred yards or so, yes. If not, no.
