    Maybe it's just me but the amount of people not using their indicators on the road seems to have drastically increased recently. Was it ever thus and I just never noticed?

    On roundabouts it's particularly irritating as it can cause you to miss an opportunity to get on to it but the M50 is chronic, people crossing multiple lanes in one go and never an indication.

    And it's all kinds of vehicles too; private cars, commercial vans, taxis you name it.

    Why? It's so little effort to click them on and off, i dont get it.

    Definitely - certainly within the last couple of years or so... I often wonder is/was it result of some anarchist Facebook or Telegram campaign, or a TicTok challenge etc...

    How would you indicate if you are making a Ticktok ?

    I find this is particularly bad in Cork myself. No-one down there indicates, especially on roundabouts. Drives me nuts anytime I'm down there as I always indicate, even on a virtually empty motorway like the M8.

    It's a mix of -nesses .. laziness, selfishness, and unawareness I think.

    The usual "f**k anyone else using the road, I'm in my own little bubble" mindset.

    It's either that or the I used my indicator so I have right of way brigade.

    The standard of driving in this country is atrocious.
