Left turns are one of the leading causes (if not the leading cause) of motor vehicle collisions. I have previously written Tips to Reduce Intersection Collisions so this conversation on NPR Talk of the Nation Hate Left Turns? Take a Diverging Route, caught my ear and led me to a Slate.com article: Don’t Turn Left.
The Slate.com article features a Diverging Diamond in Missouri that I have driven through. At first I was a little confused, but by paying attention to the signs and signals I was able to easily determine my path through the intersection.
Is there a diverging diamond in your community? How about round abouts?
