Signal ahead! Bikers should have been taught this in pre-school
Long arm of the law: A left turn is signalled by extending the arm straight out, perpendicular to the body.
Right way: A right turn is signalled by holding the arm out and bending it upward at the elbow.
Down and out: A stop is signalled by extending the arm downward towards the ground.
