Let's not forget Boston. Three right turns are seldom the equivalent of
a left turn. Also, it is nearly impossible to get anywhere without
crossing the Mystic River Bridge at least once.
Street signs used to be an endangered species there (one every twenty or
so blocks). For the Bicentennial (1976) a lot of signs were put up.
Don't know the present situation.
And what about those damn traffic circles? Revolving around a center
that requires centrifugal force to keep up (forget gravity)
