Please note there is no other way to go legally except to the right. This road has a triangle that you have an option to make a left turn before it if that was the direction you wanted to go. Once passed that (about another 50-60 feel ahead) there is the stop sign and the road curves to the right. After stopping, I was given a ticket for continuing onto the road without signaling. I've lived in the area 30+ years and have never signaled there, and anyone I've asked agrees. Travelling from the south to north, stopping at the stop sign then continuearound that curve... would a signal be legally needed? See my very crude sample... also the distance between where you could go left, and the stop sign is only about 3-4 car lengths in real life. TIA.enter image description here

    I'm with you on this one. If there's only one legal option then signalling isn't necessary. – brhans Sep 12 '17 at 18:37
  • You've never seen anyone make a left from the stop sign because they missed the earlier turn? Or is a left turn at that location blocked by a median or curb? – mkennedy Sep 12 '17 at 19:51
  • What country/state is this in? – Patricia Shanahan Sep 12 '17 at 19:54
  • I don't know which legislation this happened in, but how do you expect other drivers coming from the top of your map and driving 'downwards', who are unfamiliar with the crossing and traffic pattern, to know that you are going to turn right, without you using your turn signal? I checked the regulations of the country I am living in, and at least here, just as I expected, you are obligated to use your turn signal if you are turning, even if turning in one direction is the only option you have. – Tor-Einar Jarnbjo Sep 12 '17 at 21:45
  • Please provide the exact address of the road to prevent us from guessing. Closing until then. – JonathanReez Sep 12 '17 at 22:32
