Signals

103-112   back next >
 
 
103 Signals warn and inform other road users, including pedestrians (see ‘Signals to other road users’), of your intended actions. You should always
give clear signals in plenty of time, having checked it is not misleading to signal at that time
use them to advise other road users before changing course or direction, stopping or moving off
cancel them after use
make sure your signals will not confuse others. If, for instance, you want to stop after a side road, do not signal until you are passing the road. If you signal earlier it may give the impression that you intend to turn into the road. Your brake lights will warn traffic behind you that you are slowing down
use an arm signal to emphasise or reinforce your signal if necessary. Remember that signalling does not give you priority
104 You should also
watch out for signals given by other road users and proceed only when you are satisfied that it is safe
be aware that an indicator on another vehicle may not have been cancelled.

106 Police stopping procedures. If the police want to stop your vehicle they will, where possible, attract your attention by
flashing blue lights, headlights or sounding their siren or horn, usually from behind
directing you to pull over to the side by pointing and/or using the left indicator
You MUST then pull over and stop as soon as it is safe to do so. Then switch off your engine.
Law RTA 1988 sect 163

107 Vehicle & Operator Services Agency Officers have powers to stop vehicles on all roads, including motorways and trunk roads, in England and Wales. They will attract your attention by flashing amber lights
either from the front requesting you to follow them to a safe place to stop
or from behind directing you to pull over to the side by pointing and/or using the left indicator.
It is an offence not to comply with their directions. You MUST obey any signals given (see ‘Signals by authorised persons’). Laws RTA 1988, sect 67, & PRA 2002, sect 41 & sched 5(8)
108 Highways Agency Traffic Officers have powers to stop vehicles on most motorways and some ‘A’ class roads, in England only. If HA traffic officers in uniform want to stop your vehicle on safety grounds (e.g. an insecure load) they will, where possible, attract your attention by
flashing amber lights, usually from behind
directing you to pull over to the side by pointing and/or using the left indicator.
You MUST then pull over and stop as soon as it is safe to do so. Then switch off your engine. It is an offence not to comply with their directions (see ‘Signals by authorised persons’). Law RTA1988, sects 35 &163 as amended by TMA 2004, sect 6
