It appears prudent to fit such signs to my van, but I cant find a stick on version of
the 300 by 100 mm size. Do they exist ?..and can anyone direct me to an online
source or retail outlet ?. Thanks........oldbaz.

Is this 'prudence' actually a legal requirement?

In my case, no, but should I need to use part of an adjoining lane to effect a left or right turn, those following are legally required to not overtake . I consider it
precautionary, but maybe useful in event of a collision.....oldbaz.

Oldbaz... I don't think the Traffic Act works like that - sign or not!

Well, according to the NSW RTA, I can legally display the sign, being over 7.5m in
length, & it is an offence to overtake me if I am indicating a left or right turn at a dual
lane interesection or roundabout..from either lane......so I have no issue with it.

This statement scares me.
The person who made it probably has a driving license!!!!

The road rules may be observed here. They are the same Australia wide.
This just happened to be at the top of the Google search.:-

Yes of course I have a drivers licence - but this is not about me
My piont is, OldBaz should consider the fact that but if he is NOT legally entitled to disploi the sign, the MTRs may not apply and he may in fact be committing an offence by doing so

Happy to stand corrected

Good idea Baz, I dont know how many times I have had the left indicator on, when turning out of the right lane when some idiot has tried to come up the inside of me. Although to prevent this now I put the left hand wheels over the line so they get the message.
Cheers Pete
