The Most Annoying Thing Minnesota Drivers Do
Failing to use turn signals is the most annoying thing Minnesota drivers do according to a survey conducted by esurance.com. The site says, "Turn signals became standard in the 1960s and are now required on all vehicles driven on public roads." Using them is so easy but many drivers neglect to signal when turning or changing lanes.
The YouTube channel Chapter S investigated how much it actually costs to use your blinker. They found an average driver will use their turn signal for about five seconds at a time, using a total of 0.08 watts in total. That means the engine must burn 0.00005 liters of gasoline to produce enough electrical energy to power the signal. That adds up to $0.30 per year to use your blinkers. Their study was published by Fox News, read more here.
Failing to use them could cost you a lot more if you get a ticket or cause a crash.
