Is Reversing Out Of Your Driveway... Illegal?

On Wednesday, Paul came to the show with a question that had been bothering him for awhile.

He recalled a claim his grandfather had back in the day and now, as an adult, Paul couldn’t ascertain whether it held water or not.

The claim was that, technically, you’re not allowed to back out of your driveway.

“You’re not supposed to reverse a car into traffic,” Paul said.

Lise kind of agreed.

“So you’ve got to reverse into your driveway and you would drive, front-on, out,” Lise queried. “Well, that makes sense, why would you reverse into traffic?”

Paul wasn’t so sure.

“And I don’t know if that’s real or not, my grandfather was a relatively smart man and we would just believe anything he would say.”

Lise brought up the dangers of reversing into traffic, such as onto Guildford Road.

“I would make any bet that it is not legal”

So they opened the phones for a round of Fact or Fiction.
