Q&A - Are we legally required to use flashers at a controlled left hand turn intersection?
I often sit in a left hand turn controlled lane with 10 or more cars, all of us with our left turn indicators flashing away. We eventually drive through the left hand turn under the control of the left hand turn signal, still with our flashers clicking away.
The loud clicking of our car's indicator drives my wife nuts. So, the question is: Are we legally required to keep our flashers going once into the left hand turn lane, AND then while actually driving through the left hand turn intersection?
It seems to me that once we have turned into the left hand turn lane, and then under the control of the left turn signal light, the flasher is no longer necessary.
