Hello Everyone,

I've got a ticket for making a U Turn on Blue Jay Way in down town Toronto. I was driving south and went straight on the 4 way stop intersection with Navy Wharf Ct. Once I passed the intersection I went about 2 thirds and made a U turn. There is a no U turn sign in the intersection on the lane I was on but I though it was to stop people from making a u turns in the intersection.

The overall section of the Blue Jay Way between Navy Wharf CR and Spadina Ave is about 110 m according to google map so I must have been about 60-70 m after the sign... I'm just wondering what is the distance that a no u turn sign applies for and what would you guys recommend as the best approach to fight this? I went and got some pictures today but they were too big to attach here...

Cheers

That's a tough one. I generally assumed that a no U-turn applied to the intersection where it was posted and that the general rules of U-turns applied elsewhere.

"U-turns prohibited

143. No driver or operator of a vehicle upon a highway shall turn the vehicle so as to proceed in the opposite direction when,

(a) upon a curve where traffic approaching the vehicle from either direction cannot be seen by the driver of the vehicle within a distance of 150 metres;

(b) on a railway crossing or within 30 metres of a railway crossing;

(c) upon an approach to or near the crest of a grade where the vehicle cannot be seen by the driver of another vehicle approaching from either direction within 150 metres; or

(d) within 150 metres of a bridge, viaduct or tunnel where the driver’s view is obstructed within such distance. R.S.O. 1990, c. H.8, s. 143."
