How to Make a Left Turn
A left turn should always start and end in the far-left lane in the direction you are driving. Signaling well is vital before making a left turn. After signaling:
- Move to the far left-hand lane if the way is clear.
- Ensure you look in front, behind, left, right, and left again.
- Check the blind spots before turning. If the road is clear, you can make your turn.
- If you’ve stopped at an intersection to give way to an approaching vehicle or wait for the traffic to clear, do not turn the steering wheel to the left until you finish the turn.
With the wheels oriented to the left, your vehicle may be pushed into approaching traffic’s path. Therefore, whenever two cars are approaching each other meet at an intersection waiting to make a left turn, they should turn left and yield the right-of-way to oncoming traffic and pedestrians.
Bicycles, Mopeds, limited-speed Motorcycles, and motorcycles make a left turn at an intersection similar to larger vehicles. When making a left turn behind either of the above cars, don’t pull up beside them to make a turn simultaneously. Instead, stay behind them and turn when the road is clear. Then, right before passing, wait for the lighter vehicles to move.
