Some tickets are simply to get money. In college I was stuck at a broken light trying to turn left in a left turn only lane. I waited for 10 minutes with no traffic in any other lane waiting for it to turn green. Finally did, I went and was immediately pulled over for not using my turn signal. The clicking would have driven me nuts for those 10 minutes. Where the F did the cop think I was going? Such a hazard to the road I guess. Dumb and needless.
It's good practice. If you stop doing it when you don't necessarily need to, you will eventually stop doing it when you do need to. E.g. my dad had stopped using them properly for the same reason, but after teaching me to drive (who had to do it properly to not fail my exam), he's now picked up the habit again because of that. It's should be an instinct/reflex anyway, it literally takes a second. If anything I feel weird not hitting it, I even do it an empty parking lot and don't think twice about it.
