Ontario U Turn Scenarios
There are 2 scenarios that I am curious about, concerning U-Turns in Ontario:
1. The Ministry of Transport handbook mentions how to make a U-turn: https://www.ontario.ca/document/officia ... #section-1
"To make a U-turn, signal for a right turn, check your mirror and over your shoulder and pull over to the right side of the road. Stop. Signal a left turn and when traffic is clear in both directions, move forward and turn quickly and sharply into the opposite lane. Check for traffic as you turn."
Am I right to assume that going all the way to the right side of the road first is just a suggestion? We can still turn onto an oncoming lane starting from the left lane, correct?
2. I've seen people become impatient at a red light so they make a right turn, and then a UTurn to circumvent this.
As long as they are following the rules of a safe UTurn (e.g., not during a curve in the road, on or near a railway crossing or hilltop, or near a bridge or tunnel that blocks your view, or cannot see at least 150 metres in both directions.) then it is technically LEGAL, right?
