If you miss your exit on an interstate highway, what should you do?

Correct answer

  • Make a U-turn to reach your exit.
  • Pull over to the shoulder and call for help.
  • Continue to the next exit.


If you miss your exit on an expressway, don't stop, back up, or try to turn around. Doing so greatly increases the likelihood of a collision. In North Carolina, such actions are illegal. Instead, continue to the next exit and find a way to double back from there.
