Whatever You Do, Do NOT Make U-Turn In This Texas City
Honestly, I just might be the queen of U-turns. I can't help it. I always seem to be going in the wrong direction or passing a business I meant to turn into, especially when I'm on a road trip. If there isn't a sign against making a U-turn, chances are, I'm going to do it. I'm not proud of it, but hey, busting a b*tch definitely saves time when you're in a pinch.
Did you know that U-turns are entirely illegal in Richardson, Texas? It doesn't matter the reason, the situation, or whether or not the road is marked with a sign. U-turns are strictly forbidden there. This comes as a total surprise to me. I've driven through Richardson many times in my life. I've probably even been lost there. If I ever made a U-turn, it must have been in the right place and at the right time so as not to be detected by the law. I was lucky.
So why are they illegal?
It's not completely clear, but several sources online have given their theories. Attorney At Law Magazine speculates that U-turns are illegal in Richardson because of its close proximity to Dallas, and all of the traffic in that area.
Maybe it's just about safety?
The next time you are driving through Richardson, make sure you know where you are going, and if you get lost, definitely don't flip around in the middle of the street. You could be fined up to $235. Not worth it.
