Wrong Way on a One Way Road to Complete a Turn

Hello, I have a question for the group that I hope you can help me with.

I live on a road that comes to a "T" intersection with a one way road. As you approach the "T", the one way road direction is from right to left (meaning that only a left turn is allowed). However, about 5 metres along the RIGHT side of the one way street (down the "wrong way") there is another "T" with the 2 way street continuing to the left. If you imagine a normal "cross" intersection but with the top part moved slightly to the right you will get what I am talking about.

My question is this: "Is is allowed to turn RIGHT (wrong way) and drive the 5 metres down the one way street in the wrong direction in order to then turn LEFT and continue on the 2 way street?"

Common sense tells you "NO", but I swear when I took my driver's license test 30 years ago in Leamington, they had exactly this situation as part of their standard test route and they used to ask the drivers to "drive the wrong way down the one way street in order to complete the turn."

Unfortunately, I have searched the web and I can't find anything supporting my memory.

I would greatly appreciate it if anyone can show me in the traffic act where the case above is allowed or disallowed.

30 years is a long time so maybe it was possible the rules have changed since then?

Thanks for your help!

Tim

I would say no,
so the question is, if driving the 5 metres down a one way street what happens if you meet traffic coming the other way?
OR if you hit said vehicle

It's a one way street, so you cannot drive the wrong way on it regardless of distance.

Perhaps you can petition the city to make that short 5m distance into a 2-way.

HTA Section 153 (1): Where a highway has been designated for the use of one-way traffic only and official signs have been erected accordingly, vehicles and street cars shall be driven only in the direction so designated.
