U Turns in Las Vegas Nevada

 

 U-turns can be very dangerous, and should only be done where they are legal.
 

 • Begin the U-turn in the left lane, closest to the center line or median.
 

• Be sure there is enough room to make the turn without hitting the curb or any parked cars.
 

• Signal to indicate the direction of the turn, checking carefully for oncoming traffic.
 

 • Move forward, turning the wheel sharply to turn around.
 

 • Finish the U-turn in the opposite direction and accelerate to an appropriate speed.

You must also yield to someone making a U Turn in front of you
