Why do we use signals?
Q – Why do we check our mirrors before we signal?
A – To check it’s safe before we declare our intention to change direction.
Q – What’s the problem with indicating too late (especially on roundabout?)
A – Other road users don’t know where we are going!
Q – Are there any times you can think of where it may be unnecessary to signal?
A – When we are moving off – if there is nothing around at all.
Q- Why do we always mirror and signal when approaching a junction or pulling up on the left?
A – The car is moving so things can change quite quickly. Its a good habit to practice!
Therefore, signals should be timed, necessary and correct.
4 Main Signals
- Indicators (for an intended change of position).
- Brake lights (intending to slow down).
- Road position
Q – When do we use road position as a signal?
A – When turning left or right at a junction or any other circumstance where we want to signal a change of road position. Often used in conjunction with the indicators.
Q – Why are the brake lights an important signal?
A – If we don’t use them (say just use engine braking), then other road users behind us won’t know we’re slowing down!
Q – How do I use speed as a signal?
A – Speed as a signal can be used in quite subtle ways. For example: edging forward at a junction. However, this one has to be used with care. For example: pedestrians waiting to cross and I slow down; they ‘may’ get the signal to cross.
