Similar to turning into a multi-lane road, there’re a few steps that you need to follow when turning off multi-lane roads. The trick to turning right off a multi-lane road is selecting the right gap. Here are the steps to follow:
- Move to the right-hand lane as you approach the place where you’ll be turning your vehicle. Make sure to start early enough so as not to rush the lane changes and risk making mistakes.
- Look for a flush median or right-turning bay at the place where you’ll be turning as these will provide you with a place to wait for a safe gap.
- As you prepare to turn: Check your mirrors – signal – plan your course – brake – shift down gears (for manuals) – assess for hazards.
- If all is clear, then you can make the turn.
When making a right turn off a multi-lane road, you will need to give way to at least two lanes of oncoming traffic. Ensure there’s an adequate gap in all lanes before you make the turn.
