‘No left turn when coned’ also applies to driveways

By June Watanabe

POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, May 26, 2014

~~<p><strong>Question</strong>: What are the rules regarding turning left into driveways across a contra-flow lane? On Kapiolani Boulevard in the Ala Moana area, a contra-flow lane is set up going Ewa in mornings and Diamond Head in afternoons. I have been on the two-lane side of a contra-flow when a car in front will stop to turn into a driveway across four lanes of traffic. This often backs up traffic on the two-lane side, not to mention being hazardous to the driver attempting to cross four lanes. The intersections along that area of Kapiolani Boulevard are marked &ldquo;no left turn when coned.&rdquo; Does that apply to driveways?</p>
<p><strong>Answer</strong>: Yes. &ldquo;No left turn when coned&rdquo; also means no turning into driveways.</p>
