Turning left across a median, which route to take?
A topic came up in local Reddit forum today, with an equal split of opinions, both sides being adamant that their approach is correct:
When turning left across a median, is it the red line that drivers should take or the blue? I'm in the red camp because:
- Its what most "lined" intersections advise, so in my view it is the standard (i.e. 1st ave @ Boundary Rd)
- Doing so prevents a potential "snake eating itself" paradox where if there are two or 3 cars on each side they could tuck themselves into each other and grid lock the entire intersection.
I would do the red route at this intersection, but I would do the blue route at small through-streets at the median on Boundary Rd.
