Change to Indiana Turn Signal Law Unanimously Endorsed by Senate
Thursday, January 20, 2022

INDIANAPOLIS, IN - The Indiana Senate has unanimously agreed to fix a quirk in the state's turn signal statutes that puts just about every motorist at risk of being pulled over by police at just about any time.

Under current law, drivers in Indiana are required to use a turn signal every time they're about to make a turn or change traffic lanes.

The law also mandates the turn signal begin at least 200 feet prior to the turn or lane change, or 300 feet if the vehicle is traveling in excess of 50 mph.

Signaling a turn still would be required every time a motorist is about to make a turn or change traffic lanes.

If the proposal next is approved by the House, and signed into law by Republican Gov. Eric Holcomb, it would not take effect until Jan. 1, 2023, to give the Bureau of Motor Vehicles sufficient time to revise its driver's guide and license test.
