Signaling is one of the first things we learn when we’re behind the wheel.

This is because it is an essential part of safe and responsible driving.

Do not point out when maneuvering is a bad driving habit and poses a serious danger to yourself and others.

Most of us know that we should point it out to other road users about our intentions.

But it’s important to do it even when there are no other cars on the road.

Disaster

This is because Pedestrians also rely on the car’s indicators when crossing the street.

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

The Code also emphasizes that pedestrians have priority over vehicles when they cross the street.

It says: “If a pedestrian is already halfway across the street you’re trying to turn into, they have the right-of-way and you need to wait for them to cross.”

Therefore, failing to indicate may see a charged driver”driving without proper care and attention“.

And that could cost your driver’s license three points and be fined up to £2,500.

A costly mistake made simply for not pointing out.

“If pedestrians believe the road is safe to cross, they can step out in front of a car,” said Louis Rix, co-founder and COO at car finance platform CarFinance24/7.
