How to drive

It just isn't that hard. If you are turning left, you take the inside lane. If you are turning right, you take the outside lane. Then we can BOTH turn at the SAME TIME. If I am turning right, and you turn into my lane, I will hit you, and it will be your fault. Fortunately for you, I am rather mindful of you left-turners who think you can just pick and choose which lane to turn into. But, in my head, I am shaking my fist at you for being an incompetent driver.

(Kiwi friends, I'm sorry that this pictures if very American-centric, but I'm sure you get the idea.)

I've calmed down on this over time, but it has always been one of my pet peeves.

Thank you. Since no one here knows how to do this, I will not make a turn if someone is turning at the exact same time. Makes people behind mad, but it is better than getting in a wreck.

Also, most of the lanes around here are rather narrow and the corners extremely sharp. Almost almost everyone drives big pickups. The two together do not make it easy to stay in one lane. There are corners that are impossible to make in our pickup without going in the other lane.
