I’m curious how people handle signaling while biking. When I am driving my car I usually signal for every turn or lane change that I make. Even if no other car is in sight, I still signal. When I am on my bike I only signal turns if there are vehicles, bikes, pedestrians in the immediate vicinity (and even then I do not always signal).
I do not use the method of signaling I learned years ago that is exclusive to the left arm (pointing down and to the side for a left turn, raised up like a wave for a right turn), instead I use the simple downward point in the direction I am turning (left arm for left turns, right arm for right turns).
So if you’re a bike rider I’d like to hear how you handle signaling.
