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
