Believe its law in Florida, if it's raining and you're running wipers lights are required to be on. Also you can get a ticket driving in a rain with emergency flashers going. I also know a lot of old road courtesies have disappeared such as flashing brights from rear when passing another car to let them know your coming around and the car being passed would flash theirs to acknowledge. Today people don't use turn signals or common courtesies. Leave a few car lengths in front for safety and a moron or two will slide their car in there. I also get a kick out of the bumper stickers saying "watch out for motorcycles they're everywhere". That's so true, they're weaving in and out of traffic between vehicles going down the interstates and pulling past you on the right when you're in the right lane getting ready to make a right turn. The riders (not everyone) are often very careless.

It's getting worse and it's rather dangerous. Seems to be mostly women with the vast majority driving Fords.

Probably because no officer wants to pull someone over and have to get out in a Florida downpour.

I just want to know when getting in turning lanes is going to come back in style. 3 times last night in a 1 mile stretch someone stopped in the drive lane and pulled over in a 10' span to get into a turning lane right at the light/street to turn. Turning lanes are there for a reason. Why not use them?
I assume this lunacy will abate right around the monday after Easter, usually does

here in atlanta in stop/go traffic, the turn lanes are there so you can gain extra distance before barging your way back into traffic cutting other people off.
they'll also drive up the turn lane, cross the intersection and into the turn lane in the opposite direction, traveling another 1/4 mile or so before they force their way back in.
