I have not been hit but I notice this as well. It seems like most people only turn it on when people turn left IDK why?

Lazyness.  People like that are just too lazy to put down their cellphone and hit the signal to turn.

Because people don't take driving seriously as they should in this country. Licenses are relatively cheap in the U.S. compared with other countries. In Finland you start taking driver's ed well before you even get a permit. In Sweden you need to have an eye test from an optician, and have to pass several different levels of tests, all at a cost of about $2,000. In the U.S. you pass a "written", pay about $75 in my state, a basic road test, and then that's it. And there's far too many people who are driving illegally.

 

I'm starting to think if it were more difficult to get a license, then people would take it more seriously.

Most people in the US cannot drive. I had business to attend to in Detroit a week ago, that whole no fault insurance coupled with 75-80 mph speed limitson i75 almost got me hit a few times.

I always chuckle at the amount of people who simply cannot park or parrallel park. I watched a girl spend 15 mins parking a ford focus in a space big enough to fit two of my xterras comfortably.

 

Interestingy enough, people in Japan can't drive either. Couple that with speed limits being suggestions or non-existant with pedestrians just walking against traffic because they can leads to all kinds of accidents. Nipped a woman once in Maebashi after she walked off the curb and disregarded the go light. She was fine, but it happens a lot.

Sorry to hear that happened to you. Hope you're okay.

 

Here in SoCal, the general population changed from turn signals to middle fingers about twenty years ago.

 

In my case, I prefer turn signals even though the people behind me seem to ignore them!

you say that as if you are not supposed to use it when changing lanes. From what I have been told in drivers ed, the only time you don't need to use a turn signal is when you are leaving a home driveway.
