Sarcastic gendarme warns of ‘disappearing indicators’!

I was always under the impression that they are optional extras in france, and definitely not needed on roundabouts.

I ‘think’ (and please don’t quote me as this comes from my kids) that it is now an offence not to indicate on a roundabout. Anyone?


(Peter Goble) #4

I’ve heard/read the same somewhere and I always observe the rule, which makes road sense generally. On mini-roundabouts it calls for some nifty prestidigitation and footwork, but if it reduces the risk of a collision, it is possibly worth it?

This makes interesting reading …

Your kids are right Catharine, it is indeed an offence :roll_eyes:

Oh dear Mark, they are indeed there to be used and not just for decorative purposes :joy:

I have noticed that on Audis they are an optional extra (and must be very expensive seeing so few have them fitted).

I rest my case, can we add Citroen, Peugeot and Renault too? (And white vans)


(Bill Morgan) #10

And BMW’s :wink:

Apart from indicating left as they are leaving the roundabout !!!

Around here the standard option for tractors is that they work in oppostion to the ones on their trailers.
