Turn signals are a built in safety system but you have to manually activate it.  It seems like very few drivers care anymore. I don’t get it!

In New York failure to signal a lane change is the fifth most common cause of accidents and improper turning was number seven. It goes deeper than that though. A citation for failure to signal could raise your insurance rates and could be a reason for denial of a claim if issued in conjunction with an automobile accident.
