Even if there’s no other vehicles on the road close by!

 

Drivers in the UK are being warned about how important it is to indicate, even if there’s no other vehicles on the road close by, as not doing so could lead to a hefty fine, penalty points and possibly the loss of your driving licence.

Failing to indicate could lead to a fine of up to £2,500 if caught, as it could be classed as ‘driving without due care or attention’ or even ‘dangerous driving’ and could result in your driving licence being revoked.

Not indicating so that other road users and pedestrians know of your intent could end up costing you in a fine, plus nine penalty points and possibly a ban.

The Highway Code states: “Signals warn and inform other road users, including pedestrians, of your intended actions.”

If you fail to indicate and a pedestrian is injured as a result, you could be prosecuted. If a pedestrian is already crossing the road and you as a driver try to turn into that road, it is the pedestrian who has priority and you must wait until they’ve crossed.

You could be heavily punished if you fail to stick to these rules.

Motorists are also being warned that flashing another driver to let them go can be just as dangerous, as it could lead to confusion for other road users because they have no idea that you’ve just signalled to them and won’t be ready for what happens next.
