    Why don't BMW drivers indicate?

    Why do BMW drivers think they don’t need to indicate? Am I the only one who has noticed this phenomenon?

    I didn't know BMW or Mercedes cars had indicators.

    I thought indicators were just for lesser cars.

      Taxis also. Anyone ever see a taxi indicate?

        Certainly more than Beemers or Mercs.

          My RoSPA advanced driving instructor (ex plod traffic) advised that the people to really watch out for are in cloth-caps in Volvo Estates....


          Worth doing RoSPA or IAM to help avoid the idiots . .

            they dont know right from wrong so expecting them to know left from right is a bit much

              Replacement parts for premium brands like BMW are so expensive that the owners are scared to wear-out the bulbs.

                  I was beginning to think I was the only one to notice that people in general seem not to use their indicators any more - I mean - how lazy can you get - no one is asking you to put your hand out of the window and wave it in a circle to indicate that you are planning to turn left (yes - I have seen the old films..).

                  Oh - and what's with the picking on BMW drivers then? I used to have a "bright red" BMW and I loved it - and I always use my indicators.........

                    At least they're not Audi drivers. It seems that if you want to own an Audi, you have to pass the 'are you a sociopath' exam. Never yet seen one driven by a non-angry person.

                      The only cars/cardrivers that I truly despise are Sunday only drivers who "take their car out for a walk"

                          I've just got back from holiday where we visited an island where the default mode of transport for tourist was a golf buggy; you just drove them on the road as if in an ordinary car. No indicators; and although any form of signalling seemed contrary to local driving culture I felt a bit uncomfortable making turns without doing so. On one occasion I wanted to turn right (driving on the right, in a left-hand drive vehicle), and thought, hmm, now what - for sure, the old 'waving the hand in a circle' wouldn't be understood. So my missus, in the passenger seat, stuck her hand out instead.

                          Our meaning was evidently understood, by the local driver who was waiting to pull out of the same side road, but judging by the grin on his face it was somewhat unusual practice!

                            He must drive a BMW if he thought indicating was an unusual practice.
