percent of Americans admit to having personal reasons for not using turn
signals while driving. A recent survey of 1,000 adults, conducted by
Response Insurance, found 23 percent of drivers admit they are just plain
"lazy," while 17 percent don't signal because when they do, they forget to
turn off the blinker. Twelve percent said they change lanes too frequently
to bother with signals; 11 percent say signaling is unimportant; 8 percent
say they don't signal because other drivers don't -- and 42 percent say they
don't have enough time. A surprising 7 percent said driving without
signaling "adds excitement." The company identified several driver-types
when it comes to ignoring turn signals: Impulsive, Lazy, Forgetful,
Swervers, Ostriches, Followers and the Dare Devils. The National Driving
Habits Survey also indicated that men are more likely than women to forgo
their signal when changing lanes (62 percent vs. 53 percent). 
Among younger drivers (ages 18-24), 71 percent are apt not to signal,
compared with 49 percent of older adults (ages 55-64). Copyright 2006 by
