Would you consider a car turning around a corner at a constant speed to be accelerating?

It depends on which direction you are resolving the acceleration from. If you use the original direction of the car as it turns it is decelerating as the speed it is moving in that direction is decreasing. If you resolve from the direction which the car will be going towards then it is accelerating as its speed in that direction is increasing.

IF it changes to the completely opposite direction ... does a 180 or a "U-turn" ...then the velocity must be zero at that instant. But if the direction only changesby turning a corner or going around a bend, then there's no way to know whatthe velocity is without a lot more information.

Can you turn left from a 3 lane street onto a one way street?

Yes, it is legal to make a left turn onto a one way street using the turn lane.Another View: USE CAUTION WITH THE ABOVE ANSWER! The question is worded too generally and insufficient information is given about the configuration of the intersection.IMPROVED ANSWER: The first answer assumes that there is a turn lane, and two lanes going in either direction. A 3 lane street could also be :2 lanes going in the same direction as yourself, with one going in the opposite direction.1 lane going in the same direction as yourself, with two going in the opposite direction.3 lanes going in the same direction, with no lanes going in the opposite direction.If it is the first configuration, be sure to be in the left lane before you begin to turn.If it is in the second configuration use caution when turning and when stopping, being sure to use your blinker 200 feet before the turn, insuring the driver behind you is aware that you are making this turn.If it is in the third configuration, be sure to be in the furthest left lane before turning.This is also assuming that the one way street is going in the direction that you are turning in to. It is NEVER legal to turn down a one way street going the wrong way!DISCLAIMER:If this particular intersection in question poses a threat to yourself, your vehicle or other people and their vehicles, attempt to find a safer route to get to where you are going. Yours and fellow drivers' lives are worth the extra couple minutes of driving around the block looking for a safer alternative! If there is no safer alternative, use extreme caution when on any roadway in which moving traffic will be forced to stop behind you while you make any turn.

Why does your body move to the right when turning a car to the left?

because inertia states that an object in motion, wants to stay in motion. Since you are changing your body's direction, to the right, it wants to keep going in the direction you were, aka the left. Hope it helps :)

How do you make a turning signal for a car?

Almost every car nowadays come with a turning signal. If you do not have a turning signal, a legal way to signal that you are going to turn would be to stretch out your hand in the direction that you are turning to. Otherwise, you can install two lights (flashing or not) on the two corners of your car. Link it to the buttons near the driver's seat for convenience, and press the button to activate the lights as a signal.
