I’ve been driving in NZ and Australia past two months - on left side of road, even - and it confirmed my love for them. Except in the States they throw yield and even stop signs in front of them, which is totally weird.


I love them. especially the ones with a section for through traffic and a section for turners.  We have a new one at the marina entrance and it causes all kinds of confusion.  A lot of people with larger trucks seem to view it as a challenge be the first in to get right of way, so they will charge in when they see cross traffic, then they are too fast to navigate it well - I've seen several curb strikes already.  They have one in the main intersection of my previous little town, but they also put stop signs on every entry point, so not sure what they were going for.

If they're built correctly they can be a lot of fun.

They don’t work yet. Took the olds a while to figure out computers and civil rights, too. Can’t let that stop progress.

I imagine instructions are needed for some.  


The instructions on the package are in a pretty small point size, so I guess if someone accidentally broke their reading glasses or lost them, they may need to watch the video in order to make the taco mix (not).  It's peculiar how people make "instructional" videos for anything.

I saw TikTok for the first time today.....I dunno, folks.....
I think it's too late.
I think y'all are f*$ked.....long time....
I don't see a way back from here, and forward is way, way-out-there GonzoZombieville...

I couldn't manage more than about 10 minutes before I began to feel nauseous.
I think it's the end.
I'm so sorry.
Maybe its for the best.

On the upside, I have just realised that I actually identify as vaccinated now, so there is that...

Right turn on red is the greatest contribution to civilisation to come out of the USA. Too bad we don't have the equivalent here. But we do have hook turns, so there's that.

Makes me wonder if there are any "left-hand traffic" nations or localities which allow a left-on-red.  The only LHT country I've ever been in was The Bahamas and someone else from our group drove while we were there.  That was around 1986 - I don't remember if there was a left-on-red option there.
 
Right on red was always allowed in California, at least going back to the 50's.  When we moved east at the end of 68, I do not remember anywhere out here that allowed it at the time.  (Also of note the maximum speed in New Jersey then was 50 mph, except on the NJTP and the Garden State Parkway.  55 was allowed and they also and still have variable speed limits. Oh, and those jughandles.)  Some time in the 70's IIRC it became a national standard.  Shortly after the Arab Oil Embargo was well underway as a way to cut down on wasted use of gas idling at traffic lights.

Down in Columbus, Ohio I do remember some left on red turns onto one way streets.  Very few of those however.

According to wikipedia it is allowed in Thailand, Samoa, Lebanon*, and a few cities in India. Other places have signs that allow it at some intersections.

*I have heard that in Lebanon traffic regulations are at best a suggestion so I don't think it counts.
