I was looking on a photo album on the net called Missouri city walloped by deadly tornado (click the link for pictures with a destroyed town ) and I spotted an interesting picture for a road-geek:



Apart from the disaster I spotted an interesting thing: how do you use a road like that? I mean, in the middle there is an entire lane marked with yellow countinous line and dashed lines on the inside. Is it for the use of those that go on the main road and want to take a left-turn without disturbing the traffic on their lane while they wait for the traffic from the other direction to clear, or is it for those that are exiting from a minor street for yielding only one direction at a time?

That's a left-turn lane. You can use it in either direction for driveway access. I've seen it in Belgium as well.

But mostly it is better indicated with paint markings, because the paint on that road above looks very strange.

Yeah, thats a left turn lane. In Canada the broken markings are on the outside of the solid line

In the UK they look like this:



That bit past the bollard can be used for either direction as can the bit before the arrow, and people would most likely also use the bit with the arrow for the other direction too.

Isle of Man also doesn't have general speed limit (which makes their highways the fastest, public, non-motorway roads on earth)

Those centre turn lanes are not that uncommon in Australia. You must not enter the lane if there's oncoming traffic in the lane.

In Belgium you can do that, we have them at 2x2 road crossings. It's quite strange when drving and a truck comes in your direction and stops right in front of you....

Some drugged Swiss driver drove today around 80 km in the wrong direction on the R10 from Turnov to Prague. There were several accidents (under 10) but no fatalities. The driver is currenctly on detox in Prague's hospital. He was just stopped when he wanted to try out the being completed Vysocanska radiala... I just wonder how did he survive... 80 km, his top speed was around 180 km/h.
