There is no reason Why an Accident with an oncoming vehicle need occur we Hen a Driver is making a left turn across traffic. Most of these accidents occur because the Driver at temp tag to Naake the turn tried 0 dispute the right of Way with oncoming traffic or took a Chance and tried to beat oncoming traffic.
