Adequate sight distance is an important factor needed to provide safe and efficient operation of left-turn movements at signalized intersections. This factor becomes more crucial for left turners attempting this maneuver during the permitted phase of the traffic signal. The large size median of the major road is commonly designed to accommodate an exclusive left-turn lane. However, studies have proved that if the median of that major road is relatively wide, the simultaneously turning vehicles… CONTINUE READING
