U-turn
A U-TURN in driving refers to performing a 180° rotation to reverse the direction of travel. It is called a "U-turn" because the maneuver looks like the letter U . In some areas, the maneuver is illegal, while in others, it is treated as a more ordinary turn, merely extended. In still other areas, lanes are occasionally marked "U-turn permitted" or even " U-turn
U-turn
only." Occasionally, on a divided highway , special U-turn
U-turn
ramps exist to allow traffic to make a U-turn, though often their use is restricted to emergency and police vehicles only. In the United States, U-turn
U-turn
regulations vary by state: in Indiana U-turns are allowed as long as the driver follows all of the precautions normally ascribed to making a left turn (yielding right-of-way , etc.). Many places, including Texas and Georgia, have specially designed U-turn
U-turn
lanes (referred to as Texas U-turn lanes). In Michigan

Divided Highway
A DUAL CARRIAGEWAY ( British English ) or DIVIDED HIGHWAY (American English ) is a class of highway with carriageways for traffic travelling in opposite directions separated by a central reservation . Roads with two or more carriageways which are designed to higher standards with controlled access are generally classed as motorways , freeways , etc., rather than dual carriageways. A road without a central reservation is a single carriageway regardless of the number of lanes. Dual carriageways have improved road traffic safety over single carriageways and typically have higher speed limits as a result. In some places, express lanes and local/collector lanes are used within a local-express-lane system to provide more capacity and to smooth traffic flows for longer-distance travel

Indiana
INDIANA /ɪndiˈænə/ ( listen ) is a U.S. state located in the midwestern and Great Lakes regions of North America. Indiana is the 38th largest by area and the 16th most populous of the 50 United States . Its capital and largest city is Indianapolis . Indiana was admitted to the United States as the 19th U.S. state on December 11, 1816.

Before becoming a territory, varying cultures of indigenous peoples and historic Native Americans inhabited Indiana for thousands of years. Since its founding as a territory, settlement patterns in Indiana have reflected regional cultural segmentation present in the Eastern United States; the state's northernmost tier was settled primarily by people from New England and New York, Central Indiana by migrants from the Mid-Atlantic states and from adjacent Ohio, and Southern Indiana by settlers from the Southern states, particularly Kentucky and Tennessee. Indiana has a diverse economy with a gross state product of $298 billion in 2012

Right-of-way (traffic)
TRAFFIC on roads consists of road users including pedestrians , ridden or herded animals , vehicles , streetcars , buses and other conveyances , either singly or together, while using the public way for purposes of travel. TRAFFIC LAWS are the laws which govern traffic and regulate vehicles, while RULES OF THE ROAD are both the laws and the informal rules that may have developed over time to facilitate the orderly and timely flow of traffic. Organized traffic generally has well-established priorities, lanes, right-of-way , and traffic control at intersections . Traffic
Traffic
is formally organized in many jurisdictions, with marked lanes , junctions , intersections , interchanges , traffic signals , or signs . Traffic
Traffic
is often classified by type: heavy motor vehicle (e.g., car, truck), other vehicle (e.g., moped , bicycle), and pedestrian. Different classes may share speed limits and easement, or may be segregated. Some jurisdictions may have very detailed and complex rules of the road while others rely more on drivers' common sense and willingness to cooperate. Organization typically produces a better combination of travel safety and efficiency. Events which disrupt the flow and may cause traffic to degenerate into a disorganized mess include road construction , collisions , and debris in the roadway . On particularly busy freeways, a minor disruption may persist in a phenomenon known as traffic waves

Texas U-turn
A TEXAS U-TURN, or TEXAS TURNAROUND, BOOMERANG, or LOOP AROUND, is a lane allowing cars traveling on one side of a one-way frontage road to U-turn
U-turn
onto the opposite frontage road (typically crossing over or under a freeway or expressway ). Typically controlled by yield signs , these allow U-turning traffic to bypass two traffic signals and avoid crossing the local traffic twice. If the limited-access highway passes over the local road, the bridge (or bridges) must be longer, to span four directions of traffic and two sidewalks below. If the local road passes over the limited-access highway, the bridge must be wider, to carry four directions of traffic and two sidewalks over the highway.

Michigan Left
A MICHIGAN LEFT is an at-grade intersection design which replaces each left turn with a U-turn
U-turn
and a right turn. The design was given the name due to its frequent use along roads and highways in the U.S. state of Michigan
Michigan
since the late 1960s. In other contexts, the intersection is called a MEDIAN U-TURN CROSSOVER or MEDIAN U-TURN. The design is also sometimes referred to as a BOULEVARD LEFT, a BOULEVARD TURNAROUND, a MICHIGAN LOON or a "THRU TURN" INTERSECTION.

TOP: most commonly used; BOTTOM: lesser-used variant. The design occurs at intersections where at least one road is a divided highway or boulevard , and left turns onto—and usually from—the divided highway are prohibited. In almost every case, the divided highway is multi-laned in both directions. When on the secondary road, drivers are directed to turn right. Within 1⁄4 mile (400 m), they queue into a designated U-turn
