A driver may only turn at a junction if this can be performed without causing a hazard or an unnecessary obstruction to others travelling in the same direction. Special attention must be given to the traffic behind.” (Road Traffic Ordinance)

The question states that you do not have time to prepare in the way you normally would (e.g. reducing your speed).

Run-through of the alternative answers:

  • I may only execute the turn if it in no way affects the traffic behind me.
    – Wrong. You may affect the traffic behind you as long as this does not cause a hazard or an unnecessary obstruction. If drivers behind you must reduce their speed a little, this does not count as a hazard or unnecessary obstruction.

  • I may only execute the turn if it does not cause a hazard or an unnecessary obstruction for the traffic behind me.
    – Correct. See the quote from the Road Traffic Ordinance above.

  • I may always execute the turn, as long as I use my indicators to signal my intention.
    – Wrong. It is not sufficient to start to indicate just a few metres before a junction at such high speed. The Road Traffic Ordinance states that: “Signals shall be given in good time before the intended manoeuvre is executed”.

  • I may always execute the turn, because it is a right-turn.
    – Wrong. See the quote from the Road Traffic Ordinance above. Left turns are usually mentioned as being dangerous, but a right turn may also be dangerous if you have to brake hard and only use your indicators in the final seconds.
