Hello truckers.

I usually use the blinkers to change my direction until I'm one of those people that when I'm overtaken I make a light signal so the truck in front can pull over in the lane further to the right. 

If I'm on a road with no one near me I don't do it ?? 

Truck light bulbs are expensive. ?

Yes everywhere (like in the real world btw!)

I found that (like in the real world) people tend to not use their blinker while in a roundabout! ?

 

While traffic rules for roundabouts differ from country to country, it is common in many to use the turning signal before leaving the roundabout.

And yes, you're right: oddly enough, roundabouts are a hotspot of drivers not using their turning signals, which leaves other drivers clueless about where they are heading.

I'm always using the signals like when you need stop completely you have to open hazards too or when accident occur you need the warn other drivers open your hazards and if you have beacon you can open that too.

The ''mirrors'' most important thing driver need to be use them like when changing line, joining the roads or overtaking when someone already overtaking you need to wait your turn until his/her completely pass.

Always, best to my abilities, even when nobody is around, because I hope there will be a legitimate reason for that soon.

Besides, failing to use turn signals can be easily considered reckless, which can be punished even if needlessly dangerous situations is avoided.

I only use turn signal when exiting roundabouts, if taking first exit, I would start blinking before entering roundabout, that's how it is 99,9% of the time in my country, you will not see anyone blinking while staying in the roundabout unless they are foreigners, and large or multi-lane roundabouts where it would make more sense are scarse, just like in the game.   

I find turn signal in the game to be hard to see anyway compared to real life, even at night. Also the fact that our view is way too fixed and we can't, for example, lean forward or back to see around rearview mirror, doesn't help either, and I often can't see turn signal of oncoming vehicles. The way to counter this, when I see somebody entering roundabout in front of me, I would slow down enough so I would see where they are going (usually much to enjoyment of anyone behind me, who usually navigate through roundabout like a race car through a chicane) before coming to the roundabout, rather then having to stop for no reason. If they are not using turn signal to exit roundabout, they would be exiting before me entering anyway, but in busy places it's annoying, of course.

Well if im driving somewhere in nowhere and there is nobody arround me I may not use them everytime. But if there is people around im using them for sure. It can help in the traffic flow so you see where other people are turning and it can obviously avoid accidents.

I'm happy to read the many positive answers. ❤️

 

Naturally, I also use the turning indicators whenever and wherever required. It's a matter of road safety and common sense.

Off-topic: I even turn on the hazard lights when maneuvering/ parking.
