CLEVER TRAFFIC CONTROL--
Florida has a nifty feature in its traffic control system Ohio would do well to consider.
When it is difficult here to make a left turn from a driveway or side street, FL traffic simply is compelled to make a right turn.
Imagine wanting to go West across several busy lanes of both East and westbound traffic. No sweat here!
Drivers simply turn East, slip into oncoming Eastbound traffic, change to the left most lane as soon as possible then move along until the next "flip" turn lane comes along.
Bingo, congestion is eased, traffic continues to move nicely and the only penalty is a short detour until you can make your flip into your intended direction.
We encounter a version of this every time we leave our mobile home/RV park on a very busy US 1 and want to head South.
We simply leave the park headed North then simply slide left into the left-most of two, left turn lanes at the next major intersection--which produces another challenge.
Northbound traffic turning left gets a green turn arrow at the same time crossing traffic can make a legal turn on red to head southbound as well.
Here the solution is simple too. Traffic making the flip always yields.
