The Thing You're Doing On Roundabouts That Could Cost You $$

NSW drivers can be roughly split into two camps: those who indicate leaving a roundabout correctly, and those who don't.

But regardless of what you think the proper technique is, the law states that you HAVE to chuck your indicator on before you turn off - even if you're going straight ahead.

Yes, that's right. It doesn't matter if you're taking the first exit, last exit or the one directly in front of you. You must, must MUST hit your indicator.

If you don't, you could face a $180 fine, thanks to rule 118 (1) in your handbook; not giving left change of direction signal - namely exiting a roundabout - will set you back a couple of hundred dollars and two demerit points.

And since we all have at least one mate who insists it doesn't matter, we'd recommend giving them the heads up about this one.

That's one nasty fine for such a nice thing to do.
