Beware that U-turns are banned unless otherwise posted in Ore.
Warning to California drivers in Oregon! I have lived my whole life in California and have made U-turns, unless posted that you cannot. However, in Oregon, it is the opposite. You can never make a U-turn at an intersection unless it says it's okay.
Recently, while driving in Oregon, I received a $170 citation for making a U-turn at a lighted intersection, on a green arrow, with no other cars nearby.
I have lived here in Crescent City for six years and never heard of this law. Only if a sign says you can make a U-turn in Oregon is it then okay.
Other states that have no U-turns unless marked are Wisconsin and Missouri.
If you were ever looking for a reason to shop locally, maybe this will help out. It's not worth the gas and saving on sales tax if you are going to be a government revenue source.
Only way to get govt. to end its profligate ways is to rise up
I attended my first Tea Party meeting Tuesday night and learned
somethings I did not know and verified things that I suspected.
The main thing that was verified in my mind
is this country is broke, both figuratively and literally. The way I
see it, we can do one of
three things: One, stick our heads in the sand
and let things just happen. Two, sit on our hands and let the
"government" continue to lead us
down the path we are going. Or three, "we the people" can rise up and
let our representatives know we are not happy with the status quo and
want a change!
Yes, this takes time and effort on our part, but as I see it, this is
what it is going to take to get this country back on track. Which
option will you choose?
