Improper turns cause many traffic crashes. move safely into the correct lane well ahead of the place where you will make the actual turn. Slow down before making turns. signal your intent, at least 100feet before the turn. signals let pedestrians and drivers know what you plan to do. While waiting to turn, keep your wheels straight and your foot on the brake. if your vehicle is struck from the rear, you will be less likely to be pushed into oncoming traffic. Continue signaling until you begin your turn. Do not make sudden turns from the wrong lane of traffic.
