Text Search

Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

32-26-20Authority to modify method of turning--Violation as misdemeanor--Posting signs--Approval of Department of Transportation.

The Department of Transportation or local authorities in their respective jurisdictions may modify the method of turning at intersections provided by §§ 32-26-17 and 32-26-18 by clearly indicating by buttons, markers, or other direction signs installed within an intersection the course to be followed by vehicles turning thereat. It is a Class 2 misdemeanor for any driver to fail to turn in a manner as so directed. No such signs or buttons shall be placed upon any state highway without the approval of the Department of Transportation. When an intersection is so constructed and laid out that different and clearly defined courses of travel are provided for vehicles turning to the left or right, as the case may be, it shall be lawful for any driver in making any such turn to follow the course thereby indicated.
