Avoid Those Left Turns
« on: July 21, 2018, 12:35:24 AM »

I used to have no concept of how roads work and just followed the GPS, until one fateful day I attacked a helpless Mercedes Benz with my b pillar. I decided the problem was the darn left turn, and thus began my obsession with planning every route to eliminate intersections where I might have to use my brain. As of now I've been licensed for 3 years. I have clinched a few interstates in the Northeast and eaten hundred dollar burgers at Derby Line and Houlton. Relevant computer games helping me save myself for marriage include truck sims and Cities Skylines. I live in southern Mass., and the FAA thinks I'm allowed to fly planes.  :spin:

Greetings! Sounds like you already have a well-rounded personality. :-D You'll fit right in.

I would recommend re-tackling left turns. They're an essential part of driving. Though if you find it fun to avoid them, by all means...

You share my hatred for left turns as well!  I have a really nasty one right outside of my apartment, but it's the only direct way out of town.
