What’s the first rule of a u-turn?  Uh, look both ways?

These are universal u-turn no, nos from Driving School 101:


These seem obvious, but you would be surprised how many people forget these basic rules.  They apply no matter where you are.

  • Never make a U-turn on a railroad crossing
  • Never make a U-turn in front of a fire station or its driveway
  • Never make a U-turn where you cannot see clearly 200 feet in each direction because of a curve, hill, rain, fog, or any other reason.
  • Never make a U-turn where a no U-turn sign is posted
  • Always remember to signal at least 100 feet in advance to let other drivers know you plan to turn.

The driver in this video broke a few of these u-turn rules and crashes into an oncoming car.

Drivers, you’ve probably seen a few u-turn idiots.  Any u-turn rules we’ve forgotten?
