Starting a right turn from a road (except a multi-lane road)

    (1)     A driver turning right at an intersection from a road (except a multi-lane road) must approach and enter the intersection in accordance with this rule.

Penalty:     3 penalty units.

Note

Intersection and multi-lane road are defined in the dictionary.

    (2)     If the road has a dividing line or median strip, the driver must approach and enter the intersection from the left of, parallel to, and as near as practicable to, the dividing line or median strip.

Note

Dividing line and median strip are defined in the dictionary.

    (3)     If the road does not have a dividing line or median strip and is not a one-way road, the driver must approach and enter the intersection from the left of, parallel to, and as near as practicable to, the centre of the road.

Note

Centre of the road and one-way road are defined in the dictionary.

    (4)     If the road is a one-way road, the driver must approach and enter the intersection from as near as practicable to the far right side of the road.
