Are you required to have turn signals if you can just use hand signals?I know its safer having them, just was wondering, because one of mine broke off a long time ago and i never got around to fixing it.

As far as a modulating headlight goes... This is where the voltage of the headlight is decreased as to cause the headlight to flicker. It does not turn off then back on, this is reserved for emergency vehicles only. Also no matter what state you are in it IS legal to use a headlight modulator. Federal Highway Safety Law permits it, This federal law superceeds local and state law.

I know in my state its legal to not have them as hand signals are still allowed but its stupid becuase most drivers these days don't know what they mean.
