Be sure you yield the right-of-way
to pedestrians and traffic on the cross
street. Before you begin to turn, check
the street you are turning onto to decide
if there is room to turn into the curb
lane. Check over your right shoulder for
cyclists and pedestrians approaching the
intersections.

When turning right from a two-way
road onto another two-way road, stay
centred in your turning lane, and no more
than one metre (3 feet) from the curb or
edge of the road. Stay approximately
this distance as you approach the
intersection, while turning, and as you
leave the intersection.

Remember the following when turning:
• Yield to pedestrians crossing in
   the crosswalk.
• Do not enter the crosswalk to turn
   until pedestrians are safely out of
  the intersection. 

If it is safe, complete your turn by turning 
into the first available traffic lane on the right 
when there is space to allow you to gently 
accelerate and change lanes. After you 
complete the turn, look well ahead along your 
intended path. 

 
 

If a parked vehicle or obstruction is far enough 
away, complete the turn in the lane behind the 
vehicle or obstruction. Then change lanes to the 
left when safe. It is recommended for this type 
of turn that the curb lane be clear of parked 
vehicles for at least one-half a block.

 

If the first available lane of the street you are 
turning onto has a parked vehicle or obstruction 
close to the corner, turn into the first available 
lane to the left of the parked vehicle. When the 
lane is free, turn directly into that lane. 
Note: Yield to other vehicles approaching from 
your left that are travelling in the lane you will enter.

Do not turn wide and occupy two lanes
when turning. Unless prohibited by a sign,
you may turn right on a red light after you
come to a complete stop at the proper
stopping point (stop line or crosswalk).
