I did a U turn at a bend - I had over 200' visibility on both sides. I was going towards Market but did a U turn before the pedestrian crossing. Nowhere it says no-U-Turn.
There were no stripes but yellow lines.
No sign showing U-turn prohibited.
It was a safe U-turn but later Cop pulled me over.

Will 21651. (a) applicable:
