A Conversation for The Problem with Driving Directions
Wise Rhubarb Started conversation May 23, 2003
I'm always amazed when a passenger is trying to give me directions when i'm driving driving and points at a junction saying 'turn there'. Quite why they think I should have been looking intently at their gestures instead of the road I'm not sure! A little tip - a driver will be much happier if you say 'the 2nd junction' or 'the next turning on the left'. Maybe it's just a personal gripe but it sure does annoy me!

I always have to re-check that aspect - I ask: "Do I turn to the driver's side or the passenger's side?" Invariably its the "other right" that is applicable. I have been given WRITTEN directions that tell you to turn left at a T-junction towards XYZ town. At the T-junction, that town is to the right. I usually presume you can get mixed up between left and right, but not the town - I have been proven wrong more than once!
