Do we know and the driving rules for u-turn? Do you know how to make u-turn safety?
You can only make a U-turn at traffic lights when there is a U-turn permitted sign. When you are doing a U-turn, you must give way to all other vehicles and pedestrians—even if other vehicles are facing a give way or stop sign.
At intersections without traffic lights or at breaks in the centre island of the road, you must not do a U-turn if there is a no U-turn sign.
You must not do a U-turn:
- across a single or double continuous centre line
- across a continuous centre line to the left of a broken line
- over a painted island in the centre of the road
- on a pedestrian walkway
- at a railway crossing
- on a bridge
- on an overpass
- in a tunnel
- in an underpass
- at limited visibility
- at reduced visibility less than 50 m
- on a highway
- on a speedway
To safely make a U-turn, you must:
- have a clear view of approaching traffic
- complete the turn without blocking the free movement of traffic
- give way to all vehicles and pedestrians
