According to a study recently conducted by the Society of Automotive Engineers, approximately 25 percent of drivers fail to properly use their turn signals when executing a turn. Even worse, nearly 50 percent of drivers fail to properly signal when changing lanes on the highway.
It may not seem like a safety issue, but the use of turn signals is one of the few means of communication that drivers have to indicate to other drivers, pedestrians and others what they intend to do on the road. The use of a turn signal can help to prevent car accidents. The law requires drivers to use a turn signal and the failure to signal can pose a serious danger.
