Failure to Signal
The use of turn signals is covered in the Illinois Vehicle Code under 625 ILCS 5/11-804. In a business or residence district, the statute requires that a turn signal is given continuously during not less than the last 100 feet traveled by the vehicle before turning right or left. Outside a business or residence district, the statute requires that the signal be used continuously during the last 200 feet before the turn. Among other signaling conditions, Illinois law requires that a driver may only make a turn when it can be made with reasonable safety.
