Use Your Turn Signals

Please remember to use your turn signals. More people are out and driving in this sunny weather after last week’s snow storm. Studies show that failing to use turn signals may be a bigger problem than distracted driving. South Carolina law mandates that drivers use turn signals anytime they turn left or right on a roadway (South Carolina Code Section 55-5-2150). This means turning onto an intersecting road, changing lanes, or onto side roads. Drivers must turn on their signals continuously for at least 100 feet before turning.
