• THIS is how you tackle opposing left turns at medians


    TULSA, Okla. - You're waiting to turn left at a median. Just before an opening, an oncoming driver pulls up, trying to turn left from their side. 

    A standoff ensues- neither of you can see, so neither of you can safely turn. You creep forward enough to see you can make it, and the situation clears up despite some frustration.

    The proper protocol? Not being hazards for each other. 

    Oklahoma Highway Patrol tackled the dilemma in a recent "OHP Tip Tuesday". Using a diagram from "Adrian", they reminded drivers that they should actually turn in the rightmost portion of the median break. 

    Practicing this regularly, it eliminates the obstructions from your passenger side window, and both drivers can finish their turn without danger.
