Cuts Corners – Enters Wrong Lane

The same factors that affect wide turns also apply to entering the wrong lane. If applicant use the turning method outlined here, they should have no difficulty in avoiding cutting corners. Usually, cutting corners happens when:

  1. The vehicle crosses over the centre line while approaching for a left turn,
  2. The driver fails to pull far enough ahead for wide turns,
  3. Drivers turn the steering wheel too early or too quickly for the turn, or
  4. Drivers attempt to rush across the road ahead of opposing traffic.

Note: Turning from or to a one-way street requires different procedures. For turning left from a one-way to another one-way street, the driver should move close to the left-hand curb. The same applies to turning from a one-way to a two-way street. The procedure is to check for cross traffic and then to drive straight into the intersection to a point about 4.5 metres (15 feet) before the centre line. The driver should then begin to turn to the left, thus making it possible to complete the turn near and to the right of the centre line. In turning left from a two-way street to a one-way, the vehicle should be near and on the right side of the centre line. The applicant should turn left immediately on coming to the travelled portion of the street and complete the turn, if possible, close to the left side of the street.
