A common traffic violation, improper turns can include turning when it is prohibited, and turning from the wrong lane. Other drivers can struggle to anticipate your next move due to an improper turn, making the turns dangerous and potentially causing an accident.
Typically a mild offence, making an unsafe turn can have more serious consequences if you roll through a red light, or thought you could make the turn, and it resulted in an accident.
