Signalling: Wrong / Early / Late / Not Given / Not Cancelled

This item can cover two different issues on multi-lane streets or highways. Sometimes, drivers use a signal to indicate both a lane change and a turn. Although the position of a vehicle might clearly indicate the driver’s intentions to anyone with experience in navigating roadways, it is impossible to be certain of another road user’s level of expertise. The applicant must give the correct signal, with a clear intention, visible and given in ample time for other road users to respond if they are affected by the intended action. Using a signal light does not give the driver precedence over other road users. Once the turn is complete, the driver must also ensure that the signal is cancelled to avoid confusing other drivers.
