We have much more car interaction in V than we did IV.... Roofs... Lights On/Off... So if indicators were in, A good use for them would be when you set your gps to a location, The indicators blink in the direction you need to go.

You'd hear a tick noise when you press the Left or Right indicator.

I just want other cars to use them. Nothing is more infuriating than driving really fast only to have some idiot change lanes all of a sudden and you plow into them, sending yourself flying out the window. This is especially bad on chase missions.

My thing about turn signals is, in the real world they are there for safety reasons, to alert other drivers and pedestrians of your intent. In a videogame it's a bit unnecessary. There's no danger to you or anyone else if you use/don't use them. It would just be one of those things you notice early on and say "they nailed it" but after a few police chases or tail this person missions it'll be a distant memory. Early on, I stop at stop lights and post up behind other cars waiting for the light to turn green, but after awhile...f*ck those lights.

My intentions aren't for "realism" its the case of being able to easier concept your way to your destination, By your blinker flashing, And the interior of the car could be a left/right arrow on the cars HUD.

GTA IV had (working) turn indicators in the game code. There was just no way for the player to use them (at least not without mods).

That's what the GPS is for. If the turn signals just came on automatically to help with getting to a destination how would it work if there's multiple streets on either side that you could turn onto? Hard left or bear left? Take the alley before the street or get onto the main road?

Who cares about blinkers? I want usable trunks, and we're not getting them again! Shame on you R*! So much to the "many" car features. For a game that's called Grand Theft AUTO it's a little sad that R* never really cared that much about cars, at least they're doing a small progress now.

Well now you also have turning lanes and traffic lights for said turning lanes in some cases to help control traffic.
