Hello everyone, today the law dissemination channel will present to you the topic of how long before you have to turn on your turn signals to not be fined by the traffic police. The reason we made this topic is because of the fact that a lot of readers send questions to the law dissemination channel, please clarify that many times when you turn on the turn signal, you still get fined by the traffic police. You are wondering in fact, according to what regulations and specifically how long must turn on the turn signal before changing direction is in accordance with the law and will not be penalized.
HOW MUCH MANY Meters Should I Turn On The Turn Signal Before?
Ladies and gentlemen, to clarify this issue, we will consider the provisions of Article 15 of the Road Traffic Law 2008 regulating the direction of turning as follows:
- When you want to change direction, the vehicle driver must slow down and signal the turn direction
- While changing direction, drivers and operators of special-use motorbikes must yield the right of way to pedestrians and cyclists who are traveling on their own reserved road, give way to oncoming vehicles and only allow the vehicle to change direction when it is observed that it does not cause obstacles or danger to other people and vehicles.
Ladies and gentlemen, so when we change direction, we need to pay attention to 2 issues: first, when changing direction, we must slow down and have a turn signal, second, we must observe safety to change direction, and must give way to those who are required to give way to them first.
Thus, currently according to the provisions of the law, when changing direction, there must be a warning signal, and will be penalized if changing direction without signal or turn signal. However, there is no specific regulation when changing direction, how long before turning on the signal, so it is important for traffic participants to follow the correct speed and safe distance between vehicles, when changing direction, they must turn on the signal. Signals and redirects will be turned off after turning off the signal and there is no regulation for how long the navigation signal must be on.
Thus, in this case, when we start to turn, we turn on the turn signal, in case we are turning, we will violate and be sanctioned according to Decree 46/2016-NDCP on handling. administrative violations in road and rail traffic. As follows:
- For drivers and passengers in cars and other vehicles similar to cars, a fine of between VND 600 000 and VND 800 000 shall be imposed according to the provisions of Point C, Clause 3, Article 5, Decree 46.
- Drivers and occupants of motorcycles, mopeds (including electric scooters), motorcycles-like vehicles and motorcycle-like vehicles will be fined from VND 300 to VND 000. 400 000 VND as prescribed at Point a, Clause 4, Article 6, Decree 46.
