REASONABLE SAFETY 21-604 (a)
No person shall turn a vehicle from a direct course upon a highway until such movement can be made with reasonable safety, and without giving appropriate signal of intention.
AUTOMATIC OR HAND SIGNALS MUST BE USED 21-604 (b) (c), 21-605 (a)
A signal by arm (given from the left side of the vehicle), or by turn signal shall be given at least 100 feet before making the turn. The signal must be visible to the front and rear of the vehicle.
METHODS OF GIVING HAND SIGNALS 21-606
All signals required shall be given by hand and arm from the left side of the vehicle in the following manner and the signals shall indicate as follows:
Left hand and arm extended horizontally.
Left hand and arm extended upward.
STOPPING OR DECREASING SPEED

MAKING THE TURN
RIGHT TURN 21-601 (a)
A right turn shall be made as close as practical to the right curb or edge of the roadway.
LEFT TURN 21-601 (b)
The driver of any vehicle intending to turn left shall approach the intersection in the extreme left-hand lane lawfully available, and after entering the intersection, use a lane lawfully available to traffic moving in the same direction upon the roadway being entered.
LEFT TURN ONLY
Any vehicle that is driven into a lane marked for a left turn, the operator must make a left turn.
NO U-TURN 21-602
No vehicle shall be turned so as to proceed in the opposite direction upon any curve, or upon the approach to or near the crest of a grade, where such vehicle cannot be seen by the driver of any other vehicle approaching from either direction within 500 feet." "
USE OF HEADLIGHTS 22-201.1
A driver is required to turn on the headlights of his vehicle whenever an object cannot be clearly seen at a distance of 1,000 feet ahead. It is also required that you turn on your headlights whenever your windshield wipers are in use due to rain, fog, snow, etc. This would be true no matter what time of day it is.
LIGHTS IN HEAVY FOG, RAIN, OR SNOW
When lights are necessary due to heavy fog, rain, or snow, the low beam headlights would be the most effective for illuminating the roadway. This is because less light is reflected by the hazard.
WHEN TO DIM 22-223
Whenever the driver approaches an oncoming vehicle within 500 feet, the lights shall be turned to the lower beam. When following another vehicle within 300 feet to the rear, or when passing, he/she shall put the lights on the lower beam.
If the driver of an approaching vehicle fails to dim his lights, blinding your vision, look to the right, away from the bright lights. Do not change your lights to the high beam, since this will block the vision of both drivers, increasing the probability of having an accident.
SPEED AND LIGHTS
Statistics reveal that most fatal accidents happen at night in clear weather and on dry highways. The combination of lack of visibility and driving too fast, is the major cause.
Everyone should be aware that it is more dangerous to drive at night because you cannot see as far ahead even with the high beams on.
A driver should adjust his speed so as to be able to stop the vehicle safely within the distance of his visibility at any time." "
