Turning can be dangerous, because it usually means you have to cross the path of other vehicles. Remember turning traffic gives way to traffic that is not turning.
How to turn
To legally and safely make a left or right turn:
- Do a thorough check for other vehicles – in front, behind and to the sides remember to check over your shoulder for your blind spots (the areas of road to the sides of your car that you can’t see in your mirrors)
- Watch for pedestrians
- Signal for at least three seconds
- Turn when safe
