Are drivers required to use turn signals?

Email

Sgt. Jesse Grabow, Minnesota State Patrol

Question: I'm wondering, is the use of blinkers a state law or only an optional courtesy suggestion? It seems to me that the use of cell phones has increased, the use of blinkers has decreased. Also, if it is a law — in changing lanes or making a turn, at what point should the blinker be put on (how far ahead of the turn?) Thank you!
