Always put your turn signal on at least 100 feet before turning your vehicle. Do not turn without signaling.

This seems so Driver’s Ed 101, doesn’t it? Yet many of us fail to signal before we turn, or brake and then put the signal on as we’re turning. Bicyclists often fail to signal as well even though they are subject to the same rules of the road.

RCW 46.61.305 says “No person shall turn a vehicle or move right or left upon a roadway unless and until such movement can be made with reasonable safety nor without giving an appropriate signal in the manner hereinafter provided.” This is why you can get stopped and cited by the police for failing to signal.
