Signalling might seem like a small, unimportant part of driving, but failing to do it could cause serious problems. That’s because signalling informs other road users (pedestrians and cyclists included) which direction you’re heading in.
You should always indicate when:
- You want to pull out from, or return to, the kerb.
- Leaving or entering a parking space.
- Changing lanes
- Driving on a roundabout
- Crossing the centreline of the road
- Merging after your lane ends (like when you are entering a motorway and your lane comes to an end)
- You need to move further than the width of your vehicle (like when you are overtaking a cyclist or a stationary vehicle on the road)
Indicating at roundabouts
The rules for indicating at roundabouts are as follows:
- Signal left if you are turning left.
- Don’t signal yet if you want to go straight.
- Signal right if you are turning right after travelling more than half way around.
When you’re about to exit the roundabout, signal left when passing the exit before the one you want to take.Visit Our Google+ Page
