Turn signals are very important safety features that alert drivers around you when you are planning on making a turn. To use the turn signals, first locate the turn signal lever, which protrudes from the left side of the steering wheel. Pull the lever upwards to turn on the right turn signal, or push the lever downwards to turn on the left turn signal. When you make a turn, the lever will usually return to its original position; if it does not, then manually return the lever to the starting position to turn off the signal. Tip Turn signals are not only important safety features, but it is required by law that you use them when making a turn.
