Signal lights and brake lights tell other drivers what you are going to do.

You must use your signal light when you are:

  • moving away from the curb or parking lane
  • turning left or right
  • changing lanes

When you apply your brakes, your brake lights are activated to alert other drivers that you are slowing or stopping.

Do not confuse other drivers by signalling too early or too late. Remember to turn off your turn signal light if it does not turn off automatically.
