How To Use Car Indicators

     Indicators form a universal language[1]  that all drives use to communicate their intentions and where they want to go. A road is a shared space, and the use of indicators for proper non-verbal communication is essential for road safety and avoiding any unfortunate misunderstandings. Remember that the other drivers need to know what you are planning to do so that they don't end up interfering with it. It is essential that you know how to use car indicators to reduce the likelihood of accidents and collisions on the road. Let us start by understanding when the indicators must be used.

The right time to use car indicators

Road rules mandate that a driver must use indicators in the following scenarios:

  1. When planning to take a turn on any road, the indicator pointing in the direction of the turn must be used. The indicator must be turned on a little before starting the turn so that the other drivers are aware of your intentions and can stay clear of the turn.
  2. A driver must also use indicators when getting on a roundabout and before exiting the same.
  3. A driver must use an indicator before taking a U-turn. The indicator towards the turning direction must be turned on, just like while making a turn.
  4. Indicators must also be used when a driver intends to switch lanes. This allows other drivers to slow down to create room for the new vehicle to enter the lane without causing a pile-up.
  5. Before a car overtakes another vehicle, an indicator must be used to signal the same. This lets the other drivers behind be aware of the same and not try to overtake themselves at the same time.

Indicators must be used before the car changes directions. Remember that the intention is to allow other drivers to adjust their course to allow you to pass safely. Last-minute indications can result in traffic jams, accidents and even pile-ups in the worst-case scenario.

Other indicators

When first learning about how to use the indicator in a car, the term seems to only mean left and right turn indicators. But the fact is there are a few other indicators that every driver must be aware of. Here are the two most important ones:

  1. A stop indicator is permanently installed in all cars and turns on automatically when the breaks of the car are pressed. These tail lights let the other drivers know that the car in front is slowing down and may come to a stop. They should accordingly slow their own pace.
  2. A hazard sign is used to indicate that a car has broken down, and other vehicles should pass by accordingly. This indicator is also permanently installed on all vehicles and must be turned on in event of any emergency or car breakdown like a punctured tire in the middle of the road.

The correct use of indicators is one of the best ways to travel safely. The non-verbal communication between the drivers ensures that the traffic flows smoothly and public roads are secure even for inexperienced drivers.
