What does the California Code say about Proper Signaling?
CVC Section 22108 requires all drivers to make proper notification of a left or right turn at least 100 feet in advance before making the turn. The California Driver Handbook recommends effective ways to properly signal before making a turn.
- Never make assumptions while driving
- If you can’t see them, they can’t see you
- Check all of your mirrors for blind spots
- Don’t make haste decision when changing lanes, think before acting
- Verify that you are using your signal, if not, use your hand and arm to signal
- Drive for you as well as the other driver, when at an intersection allow enough space between your car and the car traveling in the same direction as you
