When driving, if I turn left at a T junction it does not involve crossing a lane, whereas turning right does.
This is in a country where we "drive on the left". The opposite applies if I were to "drive on the right".
So what's the term for the "left" and "right" turning manoeuvres at a T-junction, which could be understood by either convention?
"Executing a ____ turn at the junction is trickier than a ____ turn because of the need to cross the traffic flow."
The reason I ask comes from reading this post : anxious-about-riding-in-traffic-after-20-year-absence-from-cycling.
One user answers, suggesting this:
"Regarding traffic, I've decided never to do left turns on busy roads. Instead, I do a right, then U-turn/turn around and cross. This feels much safer."
I scratched my head at this, because I was reading it as if the author was also from England, where we drive on the left. This lead me to wonder if there is in fact an expression which does not require the country context.
