big debate going in my office...

edit: to clarify, there are no traffic lights, this is just a normal 3-lane main road with a median strip, it's broken there to allow right turns into the side-street or u-turns.

usually the left lane is filled with parked cars and so the pink car has to turn into the middle lane, and the blue car will be unable to u-turn tight enough to turn into the right lane and so also turns into the middle lane.

not sure if it's a standard rule.. but there is that exact junction near my house, and the sign says that U turn gives way to all.

yes, that's the way i view it, but at the office today the vote was split 50/50, half the office spent most of the day on the interweb researching it!  :D

I remember the tune "..right before left...". So I would often give way to traffic coming in from my right, if I was turning left. Exception at intersection where traffic coming from my right will have to wait for on coming traffic that'll be passing along side me....normally they'll be slow anyway so I just zoom through.. :mischief:

however... if Pink were PP, and blue were .... any normal person....   then anything goes I guess. ;)

Treat it like an American intersection with four stop signs...

Floor it and hope for the best.

A bigger car helps also...

As far as I knew, the cars coming from an intersecting road has to give way to anything on the through road. IE pink gives way.
