Casual commentary about political, cultural and economic issues with a particular interest on the city of Winnipeg by John Dobbin

CTV has an article about the superstreets concept that is being tested out to help improve flow of traffic and put an end to left turns that can cause danger.
In short, the idea is to have people make right turns and then a U-turn to avoid the problems associated with a left turn.
I think anyone in Winnipeg could come up with several deadly intersections in town where left turns are brutal. Check out the article and let's hope that someone in city planning is looking at this. It may be more expensive initially to set up but if it saves lives and reduces congestion, it will be worth it.
