Article 75 Execution of changes of direction

by Mark Nolan

1. To carry out the manoeuvre, the driver should:


A) Warn other drivers of their intentions in the manner provided in article 109.

B) Unless the road is conditioned or signposted in another way, the manoeuvre should be made as close as possible to the right edge of the road, if the change of direction is to the right, and to the left edge, if it is to the left and the road is one way. If it is to the left, but the road on which it moves is of double direction of travel, the longitudinal mark of separation between directions should be followed or, if this does not exist, to the axis of the road, without invading the area destined for vehicles travelling in the opposite direction. When the road is for two-way traffic and has three lanes, discontinuous longitudinal lines must separate it, and the vehicle must be placed in the centre lane. In any case, the placement of the vehicle in the correct lane should be carried out with plenty of time in advance and the manoeuvre should be done in the shortest space and time possible.

C) If the change of direction is to the left, the driver should leave the centre of the intersection to the left, unless it is conditioned or signposted towards the right.

Split roundabout; You must make a right turn to later turn left.


2. Infringements of the rules of these requirements will be considered a serious matter, as foreseen in article 65.4.c) of the articulated text.
