Vehicle Turning Left – C.R.S. 42-4-702

This law may be one of the simplest that exists within Colorado Law because it is one of the few laws that contains no exceptions. It simply states: “The driver of a vehicle intending to turn to the left within an intersection or into an alley, private road, or driveway shall yield the right-of-way to any vehicle approaching from the opposite direction which is within the intersection or so close thereto as to constitute an immediate hazard.”

A driver who is turning left for any reason must yield the right-of-way.

A violation of this section is a class A traffic infraction.
