Are U Turns Legal in Michigan?
We all know about the MICHIGAN LEFT turn. You know, where you go past the intersection and then whip the car back around and then turn right. But something you may not know, U Turns are Totally Legal in Michigan!
Mlive wrote “The Michigan Vehicle Code does not prohibit U-turns,” explained Sgt. Mike Church, a traffic expert with the Michigan State Police. “In fact, U-turns aren’t even addressed in the vehicle code. It seems simple, but people often forget that if something isn’t prohibited then it generally is legal.”
All the law says is that “Turns must be made safely”. So there you go, next time you whip around and pull a “Uey” – it’s totally legal, unless of course you run someone over or cause havoc on the roadways!
