A cul-de-sac is basically a street that ends in a dead end. It’s quite common to find people making U-turns at the end of these streets. The most important thing to remember for this kind of U-turns is that just because you’re doing it at the end of the road doesn’t mean you’re allowed to ignore the rules for doing a U-turn.
Rules for U-turning in a cul-de-sac
If you are going to do a U-turn by following the road around at the end of the cul-de-sac, you’ll still need to signal and check your mirrors and blind spots.
Indicating right at the end of a dead-end road tells other drivers and road users behind you that you’ll be following the road around and not turning into a driveway.
Checking your mirrors and blind spots ensures that you spot any hidden hazards that could cause an incident when you are turning.Visit Our Google+ Page
