In Victoria, you’re allowed to make a U-turn at intersections with or without traffic signals and at breaks in the median, unless there’s a ‘no U-turn’ sign. A ‘no right turn’ sign also prohibits a U-turn.
Here’s what to keep in mind when preparing to make a U-turn:
- Make sure you have a clear view of approaching traffic
- Only turn when you can do so safely and you’re not going to cause an obstruction to traffic
- Give way to all other vehicles and pedestrians when making a U-turn.
- This includes giving way to vehicles turning left from slip lane or a side street even if they have a a 'Give Way' or 'Stop' sign.
