Where, when should you make a U-Turn?

- Driving · Facebook · The Amazing Race

Mak­ing a U-Turn is one cru­cial de­ci­sion you make while driv­ing es­pe­cially on a busy high­way. A lit­tle wrong de­ci­sion in tim­ing and the place could put the driver on the dan­ger spot.

The Fed­eral Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in its rou­tine quiz plat­forms ed­u­cates driv­ers on this. It said the plat­form tests the knowl­edge of its Face­book fol­low­ers on some ba­sic safe driv­ing be­hav­iours that are ex­pected of a good driver.

In this edi­tion of Daily Trust MO­TOR­ING, you will get to know the five strate­gic places on the road where one should not make a ‘U’ turn.

You must not make U-turns at or near the fol­low­ing places:

1. Crest or brow of a hill

2. Bends or corners

3. Where a NO U-TURN SIGN is pasted

4. Busy streets, high­ways or ex­press­ways

5. Any place where other driv­ers can­not see your ve­hi­cle from at least 120 me­tres

RE­MEM­BER: Do not make U-Tum any­where that it is un­safe to do so.
