I live in a country where people drives on the right.
Say I am riding my bike like this:
- main road vvvv vvvv - narrow path vvvv vv \ \ | | \ \ |* | <-- I want to get here \ \ | | \ \|P | <-- pedestrians crossing \ | \ | | | | | | * | <-- I am here, going straight | ↑ | | | ^^^^^ main road
That is, I am going straight and want to continue like this in an intersection. For some reasons, people typically turn to the left in the crossroads (it is the main road), but I do want to go straight (a narrower path).
This means that pedestrians typically cross on point
(P) without paying much attention to cyclists, despite us having preference. They check the road, though.
If I would go to the left I would indicate it with my arm. However, is there any way to indicate that I am going straight? I think on putting my hand straight but I am not confident that this will be understood by my fellow cyclists or pedestrians.
