Swinging down the lane
I've driven on Massachusetts rotaries and New Jersey jughandles, and when I have, I've wondered, "Criminy, could they possibly make things any worse?"
Somehow, I managed to miss the Michigan Left.

This is the exact same situation on Route 22 in Jersey around Union/Mountainside. Double lane divided highway turns into three lanes so you can make a left turn, then it's pray for your life as you move fast to the outside right lane to make your right. The locals never bat an eyelash, but have no patience for those who are not.
Craziest thing to have to use, also that yardage they give you where they place the turn around is completely bogus. 150' tops.
Thanks for the link Charles:)
Oh, it's not that bad. I rather like it. Makes it harder to give directions, though.
Ooookay. Note to self: stay out of Michigan.
