Cyclists’ turn signals are required under Ohio Revised Code §4511.40 as follows:
- left turn – left arm extended to the left
- right turn – hand and arm extended upward at elbow
- stop – arm down to the rear
A cyclist does not have to continuously signal. Once is often enough. You do not have to jeopardize your own safety and balance by continuously signaling.
