Erin and I were pondering this one together.
This is one of those yellow traffic signs that I just ignore. Sure, I probably cared about it when I was 16, but now? It kind of begs the question, right? Left turning from where?
Here is the funny thing. Erin was thinking it might be cars turning left into opposing traffic, warning us that someone may cut across traffic. I, on the other hand, generally thought the signed referred to people already in traffic making left turns.
In retrospect, both are likely wrong. After all, you can clearly see all of these events…that is, if you are paying any attention. The only reason this kind of sign makes sense is if it means traffic turning left into your lane. Maybe? Because then they are driving slow? Yeah, I’m reaching.
Give me my tax dollars back, dumb sign.
