    It's especially frustrating when you're at a busy roundabout and someone's lack of indicating etiquette costs you the gap you've been waiting for for a while...

    Happened to me the other day. Someone was indicating right on a smallish roundabout I was waiting to enter but they came off at the exit before where I was waiting without changing to a left signal so I could have gone, and then the bloke in the car behind me beeped at me for not going! Aaargh.

    Advanced driving theory teaches that there is only a need to signal if there is someone to benefit from it and understand your intentions. So if no other road users in relevant area it's not mandatory. However if in doubt signal. Also worth noting that inappropriate signalling eg wrong time or too prolonged can lead to confusion. Try "Roadcraft" the Police driver training manual.

    I saw somebody indicate once. They then proceeded to drive in the direction they had indicated. It was impressive.

    Tbf worse than indicating in some ways is indicating when you have no intention to turn or it's just been left on.
