[NSW] Do I Need to Indicate with My Blinker at This Small Street Junction When Turning?

To clarify, I am a new P plater and this scenario happened recently. This happened on a suburban street so it isn't a major intersection or anything.

I was following the pink path looking to turn right when I was told that I had to indicate when turning right here. It is my understanding that I don't need to indicate here as I am simply going straight in a way (despite the road ending) and still had the right of way considering both sides have a stop sign and a give-way sign.

Please inform me. Cheers

    You should always indicate at intersections whether you have right of way or not. Indicating is to let others on the road know of your intentions when they may not always be clear, so it's never a bad idea if it means others don't have to second guess.

    Our of interest, is this the intersection of Grosvenor St & Burns Rd in Wahroonga? Indicator required.

    When I go through a similar intersection I always indicate. https://www.google.com/maps/@-33.959956,151.0994391,3a,75y,257.6h,67.28t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sRv7ZA1zJ5L1NbiQBNomIFQ!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

    Yes you have to indicate, you're turning onto another road and so are required to let others know of your intentions to turn even if there are stop/giveway signs present. Unless you there are markings on the road telling you the road is continuous then do indicate, doesn't seem to be any in the diagram

    If the road has markings that it continues then no, otherwise yes.

    Based on your drawing it does not look like road is continuing, so yes.

    on a side note: when you approach an intersection do you look for stop or give way signs on other roads in the intersection? Because it seems like thats where you are basing your argument on.

    Also yes because, lets say you were turning left. Indicating would allow the driver on your LHS to proceed to go straight.

    If the road doesn’t have continuation markings then yes, you do. Anybody telling you otherwise is incorrect.

    I'd say no as you are on the major road and have right of way. There's a give way to your left and a stop to your right. Can't get much plainer than that. If you were turning left at that junction then you would indicate as you would be leaving the major road.

      Left is leaving the major road, but right isn’t?? Turn left, use indicator, turn right, free to go? (fropanity) me, this thread is crazy…

    Yes you have to indicate, you have an option to go left or right, just signal your intentions, easy. Please don't become one of those nuffies that dont indicate because there in a turning lane. It's not only common courtesy but it's the law to indicate when your turning.

    Yes definitely, so any cars at the give way and stop signs or cars approaching or in the vacinity including those behind you know exactly where you're going.

    Fark me…if you asking this question for real then you shouldn't be on the road, get off the road and stop putting my family in danger!
