Seaside Police Files
By Shalylyn French
If you have lived on the coast long enough, it is pretty much common knowledge that Uturns are I considered to be illegal, especially along Highway 101 in Seaside. Knowing this common law, you have most likely witnessed an out of state driver proceed to do a U-turn and shake your head in the process (because oregon drivers don’t honk their horns, right?)
What makes a U-turn worse? When a driver is pulled over and not only arrested for a DUII but also cited for illegally making a U-turn and then not having an operators license at all.
Nicole Uriah Ferry, of Milipitas, CA was arrested for DUI and cited for both an illegal U-turn and driving without an operator’s license. Though the states may be different, the laws remain the same.
