Do you use your turn signals?
Have you noticed less and less drivers are taking the time to let other know which way they're going? According to a study by The Society of Automotive Engineers, drivers fail to use their turn signals (or turn them off) when changing lanes - 48% of the time.  According to the same study, 1 out of 4 of us don't use them when making a turn.

time. Another 23% admit they're just lazy...Ouch!
The lack of turn signal usage results in about 2 million roadway collisions per year.
It seems like more and more drivers are distracted. Smart phones, texting, and lattes are causing many to forgo the inconvenience of warning others of their intentions.

What does this mean to you? We have to be more alert than ever when driving:
  • Be aware of cars driving in the lane next to you.
  • Watch for cars making erratic lane changes.
  • Remind the young driver in your household about the need for turn signals
With a little vigilance, you can avoid being a statistic.
