Left Turn Lane

Left turn lane

If a street has a left turn lane, you must use it when you turn left. To turn left from the street, signal and drive completely inside the turn lane. Don't stop halfway into the lane with the back of your vehicle blocking traffic. Turn only when it is safe.

You may drive across a center left turn lane.
