The Highways Traffic law states that an illegal left turn is when the driver fails to stop at an intersection and makes a left turn, potentially into oncoming traffic, without stopping at either the signal or intersection. If you’re turning left at a junction, you must always give way to the oncoming traffic unless there are signs that state otherwise.
In 2018, 17,857 illegal left-turn accidents were recorded in Arizona, which accounted for 16% of all crashes for that year. Illegal left turn accidents are common, and can lead to injury or personal property damage.
When an illegal left turn accident occurs, usually the driver making the left turn is at fault. According to Arizona law, drivers making a left turn are responsible for taking reasonable precautions to make sure the road is clear of oncoming traffic. Drivers turning left do not have the right of way, unless indicated otherwise by road signs, so they must check traffic to make sure they have enough time to turn without hitting any other vehicles. However, there are some circumstances that the driver turning left may not be at fault.
