I'm baffled that there are traffic systems where this is optional.

wait wait wait, hold on, are you telling me there are have places in the world that you DON'T have to indicate and people choose not to??

In MI, it's illegal to swap lanes without a t urn signal, even with there being NO traffic.

If a cop sees you, it's a big fine, which I'm actually happy about, because people in Michigan are ******* cocks.

I bet you're an expert on ******* cocks, Mr. Michigan-Man.

Around here not signaling can get you into a lot of trouble. One of the number one cause of crashes in my city.

Yeap... In my country you get ticketed if you don't use them. Some assholes still don't use them because they are immature dicks...

YFW the cops in America don't signal.

Honestly there's like 2 people that I've ever met who always signal, I myself have a habit of signaling only if there's more than one way I can go. I have issues seeing the logic in turning on my left turn signal if I'm in a left turn only lane...where else would I go?

What I was told when I was learning driving was that even though you know you're in a left turning lane and have nowhere else to go, say you are in a situation where you are at an intersection that has multiple lanes (one straight, one left turn), the people on the other side of the intersection might not know which lane is which, so signalling will indicate to those people where you are going, so they know.

One time I was at a stop sign about to turn right on a highway, and a car on the highway that was coming from my left entered the right turn only lane to turn onto the road I was on. Of course they weren't using their turn signal, and because I'm a neurotic sumbitch I waited a little longer and sure enough they weren't slowing down at all. ************ stayed in the right turn only lane (which was long) until the intersection and simply sped on through it. I have my own major rule while driving:
Always assume every single car is being piloted by a senseless goddamned moron until proven otherwise
If it weren't for that rule, I would have suffered terrible injuries at the hands of a senseless goddamned moron.

Just like using signals just cause it's a left only lane don't mean people will follow that rule either.

Fair enough I suppose. I'm a fuddy duddy who follows laws though...so that makes me odd I guess. Though I do find it kind of silly that most driving regulations are so....lofty in america.

It really depends on where you are in america. In my city the cops are super crazy about people falling the traffic rules but in my other town I lived in you could get away with almost anything
