I have a driving question for you guys. I live in the state of NY. Now read the full question before you call me names and say I shouldn’t be driving
Okay, so let me describe the specific situation. You stop at a red light with your left turn signal on as you plan on turning left when you are able to. You are at a normal intersection with no turning lanes. However, there is a decent amount of traffic. There’s a person directly across from you coming from the other way who also wishes to turn left. Like in the picture I’m linking below.
Only unlike in the picture, there are cars behind each of the two cars in the picture. So when the light turns green you are supposed to wait for the oncoming traffic to go before you turn left but then how would anyone go from either direction, or am I missing something here?
Yes, I’m a new driver and where I drive is mostly low raffic areas with stop signs.
