Turn Tightly – Then Change Lanes

Comments Off

Here’s a driving irritant that has been killing me… 

When did it
become OK to “turn wide” (pardon the grammar)? The driving law in
Alaska, and (I’ve got to believe) every other state makes it painfully
clear that when  turning onto a multi-lane highway, you MUST first turn
into the nearest lane, travel until it’s safe, and THEN change lanes to
the distant lanes.
Folks seem to think that it’s OK to “Swing Wide.”
It’s not. Stop it. You’re (literally) killing me.

You’re also killing other Alaskan drivers.
