Transcript of T.O.K. Claim (~9/24/12)

In Florida, it is against the law to not signal for turning or for a lane change as according to Florida statute document 316.155(2). Even if your blinker is not working, some form of signaling is needed in order to follow this law (Florida statute document 316.156(1)). According to a study conducted by the Society of Automotive Engineers, they suggest that failure to signal turns or lane changes is a greater cause of accidents than the use of a cell-phone is while driving. The study also shows that 48% of drivers forget to use turn signals when changing lanes, or neglect to turn them off. It also shows that another 25% fail to use their blinkers when turning. The total number of collisions caused by failure to use a turn signal is estimated to be 2 million per year, which is way more than the total number of estimated collisions for distracted driving, which is 950,000 per year.

If there are so many accidents caused by the failure to use a blinker, why should the law about them be overlooked by cops? If they're causing accidents, shouldn't they be a higher priority to avoid the chances of that person causing an accident on a habit of not using their blinkers? Since law enforcement departments are usually spread thin, they prioritize situations, thus making them not enforce the use of blinkers often
