OK to turn?

Crystal of Grand Haven asked, "Is it legal to make a left-hand turn on Washington Avenue from South Fifth Street? It's the corner by Central Park. It doesn't have a turn lane and it's a tight fit area when cars are parked on the street."

Lt. Renee Freeman of the Grand Haven Department of Public Safety confirms for us that it is indeed OK to make that left turn from there, Crystal.

"If a turn is prohibited at an intersection, it will be signed as such," Freeman added.

Do you have a question for the Tribune? E-mail it to news@grandhaventribune.com, and type MAILBAG in the subject line. Or mail it the old-fashioned way to: Grand Haven Tribune, MAILBAG, 101 N. Third St., Grand Haven, MI 49417. We'll do our best to get you an answer! A new Mailbag appears on grandhaventribune.com three times a week: at 5 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.



Seriously, I hope Crystal doesn't have a driver's license and is about 12 years old. I would hate to be on the streets with someone who is so clueless and operating a vehicle.

"If a turn is prohibited at an intersection, it will be signed as such," Freeman added.

The good LT. must have gotten a real chuckle from being asked about this but I would bet he was a little concerned as well.

Tri-cities realist



Double ditto. I was going to say something about this girl last night, if in fact it is a real girl and not a made-up by the Tribune girl, but I figured I'd be vilified for picking on the driving challenged.....
Obviously Driver Education these days is a colossal joke if this is anywhere near normal for passing the course. Good luck to this little darling if she ever has to check her oil, or put air in her tires.


I think Renee is a girls' name, unless we're hiring French cops now.


Thanks.....pop came outta my nose on that one.....lol


Ewww, Sounds like you need a screen saver! :)


Is it ok to drive on 7th Street? It runs at a strange angle compared to US 31. It is very strange to be driving in one direction and then all of a sudden be driving off on an angle. Can you check with the police department to see if they are aware of this?


OMG what are they teaching in drivers ed these days so funny Christopher LMAO
