Find answers to your legal question.





is it illegal to make a u-turn where there isn't a "no u-turn" sign?

if there are no signs about u-turns, can i then legally make a u-turn?

It will depend on your state law, some states in thier rules have specific places you can't make a u turn at. So if your state has a listed place in thier code section it does not have to be marked.

Some states like GA have a clause you can as long as you can safely. IE, if you are doing it and have a wreck, then you get a ticket for doing it. Also if you are doing it and "almost have a wreck" and an officer sees it, he can still give you a ticket, since it was not done in a safe manner.

Basicly you need to check the code section for your specific state.

yes you can, as long as there are NO signs.

That all depends on the state. Some, like California allow U-Turns unless explicitly denied, but Oregon does not allow U-turns unless specifically allowed by a sign.

Generally, no, it is not illegal. State law may mandate otherwise, and any time there is a double yellow line U-turns are illegal as well.

All depends on the state. In an intersection (without a light and a designated turn lane), in Pa = illegal.

IT DEPENDS ON THE STATE YOU ARE IN. IN MY STATE, U-TURNS ARE ILLEGAL THROUGH OUT THE ENTIRE STATE.

depends on what state you're in. When I lived in Illinois, I got a ticket for making a U-turn. I had no clue it was illegal there since I grew up and took driver's ed in Maryland and in Maryland it is legal to make U-turns.

In California, yes, at an intersection. I don't know where you are, and it makes a difference.

No sign means that it is legal.

if I peed in the street because I had to go-does that mean that it did not break any laws because there was no sign posted against it? tell yourself whatever you need to in order to fell better about the traffic ticket that was given to you.
