Chapter 5: Starting, Lane Changing, Curves and Turning

In this chapter

    Although under certain situations it’s legal to make a U-turn, we advise against it unless it’s at an intersection controlled by a U-turn traffic signal. Instead, in cities, you should go around the block to change directions.

    In rural areas, continue ahead until you can turn onto a side road from which you can then make a regular turn onto the highway in the desired direction. With the higher speeds prevailing on highways, it’s extremely dangerous to make a U-turn.

    U-turns are prohibited at:

    • curves
    • approaches to or near the crest of a hill where there’s not at least 150 metres of clear view of oncoming traffic
    • places where a sign prohibits U-turn
