Not all traffic streets are equal. I was leaving a meeting in an area of town that I’m unfamiliar with. The business owner gave me directions to get back onto the main road. Little did I know that I was now about to enter a Crossover Displaced Left-Turn zone.
As I made my turn, I found myself facing oncoming traffic. I stopped my car on the line and put my left turn signal on. The people who were stopped in front of me started waving their arms to my left, indicating I should complete my turn. Assuming this made sense, since when the light changed to green they would be plowing into me, I heeded their advice and made the turn onto the frontage road leading to the highway I needed to be on.
Still a bit bewildered by what had just happened, I determined to look at a map and then try the turn again the next time I was in the area. I hoped it would make more sense then. But the point is, I needed to keep moving to complete my left turn, which was more of a U turn onto a separated highway ramp.
