What is a 3-point turn?
 
Answer:

The purpose of a 3-Point-Turn is to turn around in the street to go back the way you came, when the street is too narrow and a U-Turn is not physically possible. A 3-Point-Turn is legal in residential areas only and you must be able to see at least 200 feet in each direction. Line your car as close as you can and parallel to the curb on the right and stop, turn your left signal on and make sure that there is no traffic approaching from both side of the road. Carefully turn to the left moving towards the opposite curb stopping short of it. If you find yourself facing a driveway do not proceed on it but rather stop just before it. You now need to turn the steering wheel to the right, put your car in reverse and make sure that there is no traffic approaching from both sides of the road. Move towards the curb you originally started from and stop just short of it, turn your steering wheel to the left, put your car in drive and make sure that there is no traffic approaching from both side of the street. Now you are ready to move into the lane of traffic.
