These Are The Road Rules That CONFUSE People The MOST

To indicate or not to indicate when entering a roundabout, that's the big question that has many Queenslanders stumped, according to a leading motoring body.

The RACQ has compiled five of the most popular road rules which the organisation is constantly asked to clarify.

Topping the list is roundabouts, followed by whether cars must give way to pedestrians, when can mobile phones be used, when does a car have to keep left and when can fog lights be put on.

RACQ spokesperson Lauren Ritchie said they have published the list of rules as a refresher course for Queenslanders or anyone heading north this summer.

"These are the ones we most commonly get asked by our members," Ms Ritchie told AAP.

"There the ones we get asked for clarification and especially roundabouts."

Five road rules the RACQ says are most commonly misunderstood:

1. Roundabouts: Drivers approaching a roundabout must use their indicators when entering and turning left, right or making a U-turn, but not when travelling straight ahead. When exiting you must always indicate left just before you exit, unless it is not practical to do so

2. Giving Way To Pedestrians: If a driver is turning left or right at an intersection, he or she must give way to any pedestrian crossing the road the driver is entering.

3. Mobile Phones: A mobile phone can only be used while driving in Queensland if it's being used hands-free, and you are not a learner or P1 licence holder under 25 years old.

4. Keeping Left: On multi-lane roads with a speed limit of more than 80km/h and/or where there is a 'Keep Left Unless Overtaking' sign displayed, motorists must not drive in the right-hand lane unless overtaking, turning right or making a U-turn, avoiding an obstacle or driving in congested traffic.

5. Fog Light Use: A driver is only permitted to use fog lights if driving in fog, mist or other atmospheric conditions that restrict visibility.
