Re: Who uses indicators when exiting a roundabout??
Originally posted by (\/)ADXF 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.
I beleive its a new law., but correct me if i am wrong
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:
