Too many use the merge lane to pass, ie. drive to the end and try to barge their way in rather than to find a gap to pull out. Too many also seem to be incapable of matching their speed to the traffic in the lane they are merging into. Finally, w.t.f. is peoples problems with using turn-signals? Are they just too  :censored: lazy or are they just plumb  :censored: ignorant?

Both.  Plus, they have their phones in their left hands, of course.

Florida has BY FAR the worse offenders when it comes to not using their turn signals! I believe that once a car is sold and license for use in this state that the turn signal fuse is pulled so that, just in case by shear accident, if someone forgets and attempts to use their signal, it won't work, just like every other Florida driver.

Not using signals is not an offence to be pulled over for in VA, however if not using signals and you cause an accident...well then, that's quite different.  The law was changed several years ago.


Speaking of VA...Lane sharing is dead, using handheld devices whilst driving is on the way to becoming law.  Right, I can see people being pulled over right and left over this one...not.  But at least they are trying.
