In New York, you are required to signal before changing lanes. You must signal if you are making a left turn or a right turn. You are also required to signal if you are turning at an intersection. Additionally, if you are going to stop your vehicle or if you are going to suddenly decrease your speed you must signal. The purpose of signaling is to provide the driver behind you with an indication of what you are about to do and to give them an opportunity to adjust their driving accordingly if necessary. If you fail to signal it is considered to be a moving violation and you may receive a traffic ticket by a police officer.
