  • Turn Signals in a Turn Lane

    I did not receive a ticket for this.

    Just curious: How often do you estimate that citations are given for failure to use a turn signal in a designated turn lane? Do you personally cite drivers for it?

    Thanks.

    In Maryland, divers are required to use their turn signals if changing directions, UNLESS they are in a designated turn lane. And notice that I said changing directions -- drivers are not required to use their turn signals when changing lanes.

      Required to do so in Colorado; the number of feet 100-200 depends if the speed limit is above or below 45 mph. I have given tickets for it when it creates a hazard for other drivers. I have seen a lot of near collisions due to the fact that the first car and the one behind it decide to enter a left turn lane without signalling at the same time.

        I usually just use it for PC to stop

          Alabama requires a signal 100 feet prior to a turn, right or left. The statute makes no distinction with regard to a left turn lane. That said, citations in the instance you reference are pretty rare.

            Iowa is similar
            Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

            My new word for the day is FOCUS, when someone irritates you tell them to FOCUS
