Who uses indicators when exiting a roundabout??

I noticed while I have been in canberra that everyone does this and most are taught it in driving tests, but what about down here in melbourne? I think I have only seen one person do it.

Do you guys/gals do it?

Whats your views on it?

Personally I thought (until I was in crapberra) that you only have to indicate when entering a roundabout. So thats what I do.

It depends on the traffic conditions. At a really busy roundabout I will indicate to let them know, I don't think it's totaly necessary and I won't always do it....

Gotta admit, i try to signal on leaving the roundabout whenever possible, depends if i'm in a rush or not, but when approaching a roundabout i always signal.

I was taught here in WA `bout 11 years ago that you allways indicate when exiting

And when you`re approaching and turning left you allways indicate, but when turning right it was your choice if you indicated or not !?!?!?

I think the law has now changed and you allways have to indicate no matter which way you`re turning

Didnt make any difference to me because I`ve allways indicated when entering and exiting. Even when there`s no one around I try to get in the habit of doing it , cause it`s a bit of a pet peeve of mine other people not doing it

Only if it's a big roundabout with multiple lanes, and indicating the exit would prove useful for surrounding traffic. As a rule, generally I don't bother. Small / normal roundabouts you can tell where someone is going unless they don't indicate at all and then proceed to turn, in which case a swift set of hand signals is prudent. :s6:

My habit is to indicate when exiting large roundabouts and multi-lane. Otherwise I don't think there is a need.

But what frustrates me is that some people "over indicate"., like he ones that are going straight that indicate left once they are on the other side.

I think the law states that you have to indicate when exiting a roundabout, but it says something also about only doing it when its conveinient to do so. (I cant rememeber the exact wording.)

I only indicate on exiting a roundabout when its a large round about (like the doggy bone in north ryde / eastwood) or a multilane roundabout.
