All that signalling and lane discipline stuff is just for when you're learning to drive. Even the examiners aren't bothered if people get it wrong on test; the Driving Standards Agency whip them if they don't get enough passes. So, it's hardly surprising if people don't care about anybody else when they're driving on their own.

Why is it that the majority of road users don't treat roundabouts in the correct way?! never indicate! never in the right lane, usually just straddle the middle of the two lanes, its so frustrating!!!
And don't forget, lots of people don't have driving licences, or tax and insurance. The car goes well enough without all that, and it's too time-consuming for the police to go looking for drivers without documents. They might prosecute after a collision, but then the courts hand down fines that are less than the cost of running a car legally.
Society in the UK doesn't think it's important enough. Better not to damage the economy by taking people off the road.
