Is left turn at an intersection always at fault?
by Seeking Answer
Scenario - One driver was about to make a right turn into another lane and at the last minute change his mind and resume going straight. Another driver from opposite direction made a left turn and hit the driver that just decided to go straight rather than turn right.
Who's fault - the driver make a turning left at an intersection or the driver that was making a right turn and then changed his mind and go straight?
Yes. According to R.R.O. 1990, Reg. 668, s. 12 (5).: "(5) If automobile “B” turns left into the path of automobile “A”, the driver of automobile “A” is not at fault and the driver of automobile “B” is 100 per cent at fault for the incident."
