Ontario U-turns, Right Of Way And The Accident

by: tivebos536 on

Let's say here's the situation:

1) Car A (white) is going to make a U-turn.

2) Car B (black) is going to make a right turn.

3) Both cars do their actions together.

4) Accident happend.


So my questions are:

1) What fines and demerit points each of them receive?

2) What insurance companies will tell to each of them?

1) This road has 2 lines in total (one for each direction).

2) There are no traffic lights on the intersection (the right of way is determined by the STOP sign only).

3) There are no extra signs - left turn and U turn are allowed (not forbidden) on the intersection.

4) The accident reason - car B assumed that car A is going to make left turn instead of U-turn, so car B started the movement before car A was able to complete U-turn.

Hmmm... My initial post already contains an image, but for some unknown reasons only I can see it (I mean, when I'm logged in). That explains everything lol. Let me try again.

You may want to read section 136 of the HTA. The requirement is to stop. Then, “shall yield the right of way to traffic in the intersection or approaching the intersection on another highway so closely that to proceed would constitute an immediate hazard and, having so yielded the right of way, may proceed.”


(2) Every driver or streetcar operator approaching, on another highway, an intersection referred to in sub section 1, shall yield the right of way to every driver or operator has complied with the requirements of sub section 1.


Driver A didn’t do this.
