Do you have to use your turn signal if you are in a designated turn lane?

Yes. It's the law and informative to the other drivers around you.

One can not over signal/indicate. Lets every other driver know what you plan to do so they can then adjust accordingly to maintain a 2-4 second bubble around their vehicle.

Wouldn't this be like saying, if you are on a heavily curved road then you need to put your signal on in the direction of the curve? hmmm

I prefer to stop and hand out informative flyers that announce my intention to make a turn.

Not if you are passing, just put your hazarad flashers on and keep going. (sorry this is for center turn lanes only)

I like the the folks that use the turn lane as an on ramp to move right and then don't use their signals to merge in .

Double fail.

How hard is it to flip the lever? Some people apparently it's very difficult.

Yes. That is providing you ordered the blinker option when buying your vehicle, and you must use the blinker fluid or it will go bad.

I seldom use mine. I prefer to keep you guessing and to pi$$ you off.

Merge back into traffic because you didnít know it was a turn only lane? Happens everyday to someone in front of me, especially with all of the construction in DFW and exit only lanes on the highways and interstates.

Now I got it. You ride bicycles. No blinkers. It finally makes sense.
