Can someone please tell me what the point of having them is, if no-one uses them?
I regularly see people driving along, braking and just turning into junctions, across traffic, and plain stopping at the side of the road with no indication what so ever.
I wonder why this is? I assume they have a driving license, so have had to pass a test which would require them to indicate. I think it is both selfish, and also indicative of a total ignorance to their surroundings.
I had one last night - negotiated a right turn and 2 roundabouts with no indicators, so I over took it as it was going slowly (45 in a 60). In the next village it caught me up (speeding - 40 in a 30) and I guessed it would be going the same way as me (due to its general direction so far).
So instead of indicating at the junction I just braked and turned left. The driver of the car behind did the same - no indication, but blew its horn at me, over took and flashed its indicators on and off - as if to tell me to indicate!!
Mmmm. It's ok for you to drive around like the new recruit to MI6 secret service, but as soon as someone doesn't indicate you don't like it?
