Hi all,

So I was trying to find out more about this particular charge. What I gather is it is a 2 point charge but that is it. Problem is when I try to google it I get essentially no results! I can't find it in any legal literature, it isn't in the ministry listof demerit charges at all... what am I missing? Is it a term that is rolled into another charge? Any help is appreciated!

Several paralegals I spoke to when hunting to higher one all used the term so I know it is legit, but why can I not find anything about it?

I'm thinking it's section 142(1), typically known as "Turn not in safety".

Quote:
The driver or operator of a vehicle upon a highway before turning to the left or right at any intersection or into a private road or driveway or from one lane for traffic to another lane for traffic or to leave the roadway shall first see that the movement can be made in safety, and if the operation of any other vehicle may be affected by the movement shall give a signal plainly visible to the driver or operator of the other vehicle of the intention to make the movement.


This offence does carry 2 demerit points.
