U-turn
A U-TURN in driving refers to performing a 180° rotation to reverse the direction of travel. It is called a "U-turn" because the maneuver looks like the letter U . In some areas, the maneuver is illegal, while in others, it is treated as a more ordinary turn, merely extended. In still other areas, lanes are occasionally marked "U-turn permitted" or even " U-turn
U-turn
only." Occasionally, on a divided highway , special U-turn
U-turn
ramps exist to allow traffic to make a U-turn, though often their use is restricted to emergency and police vehicles only. In the United States, U-turn
U-turn
regulations vary by state: in Indiana U-turns are allowed as long as the driver follows all of the precautions normally ascribed to making a left turn (yielding right-of-way , etc.)

Traffic Signal
TRAFFIC LIGHTS, also known as TRAFFIC SIGNALS, TRAFFIC LAMPS, TRAFFIC SEMAPHORE, SIGNAL LIGHTS, STOP LIGHTS, ROBOTS (in South Africa ), and TRAFFIC CONTROL SIGNALS (in technical parlance), are signalling devices positioned at road intersections , pedestrian crossings , and other locations to control flows of traffic. The world's first, manually operated gas-lit traffic signal was short lived. Installed in London in December 1868, it exploded less than a month later, injuring or killing its policeman operator. Traffic control started to seem necessary in the late 1890s and Earnest Sirrine from Chicago patented the first automated traffic control system in 1910. It used the words "STOP" and "PROCEED", although neither word lit up. Traffic lights alternate the right of way accorded to users by displaying lights of a standard colour (red, amber (yellow), and green) following a universal colour code

Wrong Way Driving
WRONG-WAY DRIVING (WWD) is the act of driving a motor vehicle against the direction of traffic . It can occur on either one- or two-way roads (in the latter case, arising from driving on the wrong side of the road ), as well as in parking lots and parking garages , and may be due to driver inattention or impairment, or because of insufficient or confusing road markings or signage , or a driver from a right-hand traffic country being unaccustomed to driving in a left-hand traffic country, and vice versa. People intentionally drive in the wrong direction because they missed an exit, for thrill-seeking, as a suicide attempt, or as a shortcut. On a divided highway , especially freeway , WWD is a serious problem because of the high speeds usually involved, since the result is more likely a head-on collision . In the United States , about 355 people are killed each year in crashes caused by drivers headed in the wrong direction on the highway
