UPS Delivery Trucks Save 10 Million Gallons of Gas Every Year by Not Making Left Turns
John Farrier, neatorama.com

(Photo: zyphbear)Making a left turn on a 2-way street in the United States can take a while. Those few extra seconds add up for a company like UPS, which operates 96,000 trucks. Since 2001, the company has closely examined how it can become more…

I dislike making left turns across traffic. There is a lot going on including pedestrians, oncoming cars, and at least in Seattle often someone running a red light. Too much dissonance.

Good to know UPS is following my lead and whenever possible making right turns. I’m not alone.
