The Importance of Turn Signals

One of the most basic methods of promoting safety on the road is communicating with other drivers. Taking the time to use turn signals and brakes effectively can mean the difference between a successful trip and a devastating accident. Drivers are required by law to use turn signals before changing lanes or slowing down to turn because it will alert other vehicles that their driving speed and direction will change.

Should a driver near you fail to use his or her blinkers, it can lead to serious car accidents. If you or someone you love has been the victim of a car accident due to the negligence of another, you may be able to take legal action against the responsible party.

Why Turn Signals Matter

Any failure to adhere to laws regarding safe driving may compromise the health and well-being of others.. Turn signals are required when a driver needs to:

  • Change lanes- This can be hazardous in high-traffic situations because of the close proximity of other vehicles and the dangers of blind spots.
  • Turn a corner- When drivers need to turn around a corner they will have to slow their vehicle down considerably. Without the warning offered by a turn signal, this may result in a rear-end collision.
  • Exit a highway- Before exiting, drivers should alert others on the road that they intend to slow down and leave their lane on the highway.

It is important to make sure that communications remains open and successful between drivers. The injuries and property damage associated with car accidents can be extensive and costly for anyone involved in an accident.
