Oh, I seem to recall hearing something about indicating if you are going straight when entering, maybe my ears/memory are failing me.

cheers for the clarification :)

freitasm: Check rscole's post and link before my reply. You have to indicate when exiting, even if it's straight through. This was changed recently.

I don't believe this is actually a new rule, because I learned to do this when I started driving 15 years ago or so...  I'd have to try and dig out my old road code to prove this though.

Before this rule change you didn't need to indicate if you wanted to turn left on the first exit (straight through the roundabout), only needed to indicate right if going to the other exists, then left when approaching those.

Here is the rule change FAQ. It happened in 2004.

Now please back on topic.

I guess this is where my confusion arose: "Although this has been recommended behaviour at roundabouts for some time (as reflected by advice in the Road Code), until now it hasn’t been law".  That brings me to one of my most annoying things, being confused! Wink

Gah! The stickers thing drives me crazy! My aunt bought a new bathroom vanity top and left the showroom sticker on it like forever. Crazy. I've bought second-hand electronics (amp etc) that are ~four years old and still have the shop stickers. Sad.

Cleaning product advertising (when I don't skip the ad's on TV).

If you kitchen, bathroom, toilet, or shower really looked like that I would suggest the person/s living in that house would be dead already from some form of poisoning or bug infection.

freitasm: People who indicate to enter a roundabout - even though their only intention is to go straight - which mean they should really only indicate when leaving the roundabout, otherwise people will think they are going to the other exit.


Umm correct me if I am wrong.. but I believe there was a law change with regards to indicating when entering a round about?

I agree though.. indicators are for left and right turns.. so why would you indicate going straight...?


It shows you haven't updated yourself with the latest changes in indicator usage at roundabouts, right?

Check rscole's post and link before my reply. You have to indicate when exiting, even if it's straight through. This was changed recently.

You obviously don't have to indicate RIGHT if you are going straigth but you have to indicate LEFT to let others know you are going to exit, even if it's going straight through.

Clear now?

To ensure that the lives of some are worth living and enrichened hehe!.. I have removed the speed test results in my sig :D

One thing that annoys me is... seeing parents walking with their kids.. the parents have shoes.. and the kids don't..

For some reason the parents want to protect their feet from bits of dirt, glass on a footpath, but they think their kid's feet won't possibly be injured at all. Totally irresponsible.
