Dear stupid Provo driver:
In this country we drive on the right. Going both directions. That means that cars that are going the opposite direction from you look to you as though they were on the left side of the street. If you're having trouble with right and left, let me suggest that you go back to elementary school for a few days. And I'd definitely suggest you give up your driver's license for an indefinite period of time.
It is true that in some places, when you want to turn left, there is a turning lane in the middle of the road. You get a few consolation points for remembering, unlike other stupid Provo drivers, that a two-way left-turn lane is not a lane of traffic. But by the same token, neither is a lane of traffic a two-way left-turn lane. When there is not a two-way left-turn lane, you cannot pull into the opposite lane to execute your left turn. Well, I guess you can, as you obviously proved this morning, but I'd advise against it. If you're not sure why, see the suggestion at the end of the previous paragraph.
This would have been bad enough had no other cars been on the road at the same time as you. Unfortunately for him or her, someone else happened to be going the opposite way from you as you moved into their lane to turn left. They had to slam on their brakes to avoid running head-on into you, this sudden car appearing right in their path even though they were doing nothing wrong. While this caused me no end of amusement on my way to the bus stop this morning, it probably traumatized this innocent law-abiding driver to no end. How could you do that to them?
In closing, may I add that, however stupidly you turn left, you should also USE YOUR BLINKER. That is, if you ever drive again. Which I'd recommend against.
