"Ironically, the only drivers who regularly use hand signals any more are 
cyclists. So far 23 states have changed their statutes to permit cyclists to 
make a right turn signal with the right hand. The most recent was Colorado 
(2005). Cyclists can make a stopping signal with either hand; the law should 
also permit it. A right-hand stopping signal is more effective and more 
visible when the cyclist is at the left side of a traffic lane, for example 
when riding on the left side of a one-way street."

I did not see a list of which states allowed the right hand.
