How To Make Right, Left & U-Turns

 

 
Turning may seem basic but it is ordinary driving tasks that are so easy to do wrong. The first thing you need to do before you make a turn is to make up your mind to turn. Generally give your turn signal a full city block before your turn. If you miss your turn keep going until you can safely exit and turn back. Once you start a turn, follow through.

If you plan to make a right hand turn, get close to the right edge of the road. Watch for pedestrians and people on bicycles. If you are turning at an intersection look left then right then left again. If all is clear make your turn. Don’t turn wide but stay in the right lane until you’ve finished your turn. When you want to turn left, get close to the center divider line or into the left turn lane if there is one. Turn left only when you see that it is safe.

You can turn right on a red light unless there is a sign prohibiting you from doing so. The only time you can make a left turn at a red light is when both the street you’re on and the street you want to turn on to are both one way streets. If you make a u-turn, make it from the far left lane. Do not make a u-turn under any circumstance if you’re in front of a fire station, on a one way street, if you must cross a no passing zone, you cannot see clearly in each direction, or is there is a “No U-Turn” sign posted.
