Just maybe the drivers that don't use them, they may have been cited or just warned beforehand for driving along with their signal blinking aimlessly at some previous time, as forgotten(malfunction),maybe.

I once finally passed a vehicle on a two lane, after He had driven over 1.5 mile with a left blinking signal. I then stayed in front of him and stuck my hand out my drivers window and used my hand in an open very stretched/closed fashion movement, repeating motion.

The fellow's passenger(Wife) I believe, made a motion to Him, then off went his signal. I just drove on ahead, but a risky pass at that. He evidently needed a hood mounted shaded LED turn indicators.

The people who don't use them are just not thinking. They don't realize that all of the drivers in traffic around them, need to know what their next move is going to be so the drivers around them can also make their next decisions.

Hardly ever, unless we're driving into one of the major cities where high crime rate is simply considered a normal event...
