Mass. DOT: "Use Ya Blinkah!"

Massachusetts has a perfectly sensible in law in which motorists, when the change lanes on the state's highways, must use a turn signal to tell everybody what they're going to do.  

The law is widely ignored, perhaps confirming the stereotype that Massachusetts drivers are perhaps a wee bit aggressive and hazardous.

According to WCVB, Massachusetts police issued 4,967 citations to drivers who failed to signal.

The DOT put up electronic signs recently reminding motorists of the law. Police and the DOT hope speaking Massachusetts drivers' language might help.

"Use Yah Blinkah."

Works for me.
