Avoid a Car Accident When Making a U-turn

Avoid a car accident when making a U-turn by knowing the rules of the road in Washington regarding such. Drivers in Washington may only make a U-Turn if the following conditions are met:

  • The turn can be made in safety
  • The turn does not interfere with other traffic
  • The turn is not being made on a curve
  • The turn is not being made on a grade where the vehicle is not visible by other vehicle approaching from either direction
  • There is not a sign prohibiting the U-Turn.

You are only permitted to make the U-Turn when ALL of these conditions are met.  Failure to meet one or more of these conditions could result in you receiving a ticket, being subject to a fine, or open yourself to liability if an accident occurs.

The Washington Rule of the Road regarding U-Turns is as follows:

RCW 46.61.295: "U" turns.

  • The driver of any vehicle shall not turn such vehicle so as to proceed in the opposite direction unless such movement can be made in safety and without interfering with other traffic.
  • No vehicle shall be turned so as to proceed in the opposite direction upon any curve, or upon the approach to or near the crest of a grade, where such vehicle cannot be seen by the driver of any other vehicle approaching from either direction within five hundred feet.
