Road Safety

Turn Signals

Using turn signals isn’t just a courtesy to drivers around you. It’s the law.

The Highway Traffic Act states that you must signal whenever your vehicle is going to be moving away from a straight line. That includes changing lanes, turning, pulling over, parking or entering the flow of traffic.

Using your turn signals also helps other drivers understand your intentions, so they can act or respond accordingly.

Before you make a turn or change lanes, turn on your signal, and then check your mirrors and do a shoulder check. Do not make the turn or change lanes until it is safe to do so.

Using turn signals is how drivers can communicate with each other to help prevent a collision on the road.
