Are U turns are always illegal in traffic where there are no signs indicating that a u turn is not permitted.
- There is no rule of the road in SA that specifically prohibits a U-turn at a set of traffic lights. The legality of doing a U-turn there would depend on the factors you have mentioned in your article – road signs, road markings, traffic flow and visibility situation, road width, and so on.
- Sometimes the road engineers deem it necessary to include a No U-turn signal an intersection or break in a traffic island to emphasise to drivers that a U-turn at that point is definitely not permitted.
