If You Pass the Wrong Way Sign
If you drive past the Wrong Way sign you are in trouble. As soon as you face a Wrong Way sign directly in front of you, you are already driving against traffic.
What You Must Do
If you find yourself driving in the wrong direction, you must come to an immediate stop and turn around in a safe manner. Pull over to the side of the road and turn on your emergency flashers. As soon as it is safe, make a U-turn and drive in the same direction as other traffic.
You should NEVER continue to drive in the wrong direction. You put yourself and others in danger.
The only exception to this rule is when you are directed to drive in this direction by a law enforcement officer. Such situations are rare but may occur when roads are closed, and traffic is re-directed. But even when directed to do so, use extreme caution and watch for oncoming traffic.
Learn How the Two Signs Are Used
On any restricted roadway where traffic is prohibited from entering there is a Do Not Enter sign. You will see the sign at a point where you could wrongly enter a divided highway, one-way roadway, or ramp.
The sign tells you that you may not turn into that roadway or exit ramp.
The Wrong Way sign is used as a supplement to the Do Not Enter sign. It is placed at a location along the exit ramp or the one-way roadway farther from the crossroad than the Do Not Enter sign.
Remember, the Wrong Way sign tells you that you are already traveling in the wrong direction!
