Passenger Turning Path - 180°

The 180° turning path of a passenger vehicle measures the minimum possible turning radius for use when designing spaces for u-turns or turn-arounds within streets, parking lots, drop-offs, or service areas. Measuring the inner and outer radii of the 180° turn, a minimum inner radius of 14’5” | 4.39 m and minimum outer radius between 24’-25’6” | 7.31-7.77 m should be provided throughout the turn. Turning paths can use either curb-to-curb or wall-to-wall measurements based on whether the turning circles are calculated based on the outer tire or the outer front overhang. Additional clearances should be provided whenever possible to accommodate a larger variety of car sizes and driver abilities.

Common Questions
What is the minimum inside turning radius required for a passenger vehicle making a 180° turn?
A minimum inner turning radius of 14’5” | 4.39 m should be provided for a passenger vehicle making a 180° turn.
How is a turning circle measured?
A vehicle’s turning circle is the radius (or diameter) measured by the outer wheels of the vehicle while making a complete turn.
What is the minimum outside turning radius required for a passenger vehicle making a 180° turn?
The outer turning radius necessary for a passenger vehicle making a a 180° turn should be between at least 24’-25’6” | 7.31-7.77 m based on the circular path made by the front overhang of the car. Additional space should be provided whenever possible.
