What is the big deal to signal if you are turning a corner or changing lanes? Its the height of laziness and so inconsiderate as well.December 4, 2013 12:28 am at 12:28 am #991948oomisParticipant
You know, this is a real pet peeve of mine, especially when the person not signalling makes a left turn in front of me. I signal even when there is NO car around anywhere; it’s the law.December 4, 2013 12:38 am at 12:38 am #991949Derech AgavParticipant
i am with both of you
why does it have to be so frustrating to drive in certain places????
like who are you to stop ure car at dismissal tme on abz street or avenue??!!
ETC!!December 4, 2013 12:42 am at 12:42 am #991950squeakParticipant
Because when I signal you suddenly notice that I’m about to pass you and you try to block me or steal my lane. If you’d just come to terms with being a slowpoke and let me on my way we’d be at peace.
When I’m in a turning lane that is marked for left only or right only I don’t signal because its redundant. All other times I do signal.
Sometimes I signal when I’m not about to turn. For example, if someone pulls up next to me at a light indicating he will try to cut me off on green, I will signal that I’m about to turn into him and rattle him, then blow smoke in his engine intake when the light turns.December 4, 2013 12:47 am at 12:47 am #991951Mr SfardiParticipant
I agree with all of you. welcome to brooklyn!!December 4, 2013 1:14 am at 1:14 am #991952TheGoqParticipant
As a pedestrian this is really annoying you wait to turn your signal on about 3 seconds before you turn if u had signaled before i could have crossed.December 4, 2013 4:32 am at 4:32 am #991953Little FroggieMember
Are you asking about me? I don’t know where I’m going until I turn.December 4, 2013 5:32 am at 5:32 am #991954peacefullMember
It’s even worse when they signal to the right & then they turn left. So confusing. Or suddenly drive out of a parking spot right in front of you without any signal at all.

So annoying! Its just as bad as not stopping at a stop sign! Its annoying as a pedestrian and frustrating as a fellow driver.December 4, 2013 8:39 pm at 8:39 pm #991956WIYMember
They probably dont know how to do it. Or they are paranoid and dont want you following them.December 4, 2013 8:39 pm at 8:39 pm #991957popa_bar_abbaParticipant
I am very meticulous about right of way when I am driving. I have right of way.December 4, 2013 10:17 pm at 10:17 pm #991958Shticky GuyParticipant
1. Yes it really is very annoying and inconsiderate
2. Yes welcome to Brooklyn
3. Whadayawant from these poor drivers (no pun intended)? What with their cell in one hand and steering wheel in the other, they do not have a hand free with which to signalDecember 4, 2013 11:06 pm at 11:06 pm #991959mobicoParticipant
Because THEN people would know where they were GOING!December 5, 2013 12:50 am at 12:50 am #991960Anonymous1000Participant
If we all started honking at these people would that help?December 5, 2013 2:31 pm at 2:31 pm #991961
In my view, people don’t signal cause they think they don’t need to bother with such petty little things. It’s an attitude that shows selfishness and inconsiderate behaviour. The only time I don’t signal is when I am in a filter lane, which only goes one way. Even when the roads are empty, at night, and no pedestrians, I still signal.December 5, 2013 5:48 pm at 5:48 pm #991962miritchkaMember
notasheep: I agree with what you posted except for not signalling when you are in a filter lane. If you are turning your steering wheel (yes even when you are making a k-turn!!) then the blinkers should be flicked on. Doesnt matter where you are or who’s around you.December 6, 2013 2:36 pm at 2:36 pm #991963cherrybimParticipant
Every time that drivers do not use an arrow signal when turning or changing lanes, they are committing several aveiros as a result.December 6, 2013 8:08 pm at 8:08 pm #991964peacefullMember
Cherry can you list out those AvairosDecember 8, 2013 10:07 am at 10:07 am #991965
miritchka, if you are in a lane that can only turn in one direction, it is redundant to signal, and in England at least you do not have to signal by law. If you need to switch lanes to move into the filter lane, then of course you should signal. The whole point of signalling is so other drivers know which direction you are turning, but if the lane is clearly marked as only allowing the driver to turn in one specific direction then people already know where you are turning.December 9, 2013 4:03 pm at 4:03 pm #991966cherrybimParticipant
To list a few: g’neivas daas; g’neivas z’man; chillul Hashem; v’nishmartem m’od l’nafshoseichem; deeno d’malchuso.
If chas v’shalom an accident happens as a result or worse, you can include a lot more.December 9, 2013 6:17 pm at 6:17 pm #991967Little FroggieMember
what kind of avairo is deeno d’malchuso?December 9, 2013 6:30 pm at 6:30 pm #991968
It’s the law of the country that when a person drives, they should signal to indicate which direction they are turning. Not to do so is against the law of the land.December 9, 2013 7:30 pm at 7:30 pm #991969ChaimyParticipant
Many people are too busy talking are on their phone, or adjusting the radio/climate control and just don’t care. My thinking is there is even more reason to signal when you don’t see anyone, because if there is someone and you didn’t see him/her you won’t be careful.
