The driver of a vehicle intending to turn to the left within an intersection or into an alley, private road, or driveway shall yield the right-of-way to any vehicle approaching from the opposite direction, or vehicles lawfully passing on the left of the turning vehicle, which is within the intersection or so close thereto as to constitute an immediate hazard. A violation of this section is a noncriminal traffic infraction, punishable as a moving violation as provided in chapter 318.
What if the driver coming in opposite direction is not passing lawfully? He is passing on a double line in a no passing zone. His driver's license is also suspended and he is speeding. Does he still have the right of way?

What is considered lawfully passing on the left if the vehicle making the left turn has already begun making the turn and is then stuck by the passing vehicle ?

At a 2-way stop sign, when two vehicles approach almost at the same time, and one is turning left and the other is going straight through. Who has the right-of-way?

I was issued a citation for turning left across traffic, and was hit in my passenger side rear wheel... I believe the posted speed is 45, and I was spun a 180 degrees. I've always heard anything behind your door, is the other drivers fault. Is there any truth to this theory? Or would this be a good cause to seek legal advice??
