Fenny way is not 4 lanes, it's 2 lanes. I turn left onto Fenney every day and never have to wait for more than a few cars. It's also easy turning left onto Fenney from Corbin, I don't think I ever had to wait for more than 1 or 2 cars at that intersection.

I turn left on Pinellas just about every day, sometimes a couple of times a day. Occasionally I have to wait for a clusters of 3 or 4 cars but usually there is little time spent waiting.

When did Pinellas and Hillsborough become 4 lane?

Guess it depends on what you consider a lane? Two cars and two golf cart lanes? Some folks are just impatient so guess it matters to them.

I delivered Pizzas for a living in College for 3 years. Yes, left turns across major intersections are bad. However, the worst thing on earth are Stop lights. We would set up our deliveries to avoid as many stoplights as possible. Stop signs, you stop and go. Stop lights you have to wait, and waiting is what slows you down. It was a great job.

BTW- who cares when you are retired - what is your hurry anyway?
And I don't get the whole idea - when I hit Hillborough, sometimes I am going right, and sometimes left - Right to Brownwood or the Ace Hardware in Wildwood - left to Rohan, Manatee, or Lady Lake. So you have to make left hand turns - no way to avoid it really.

About turning. It could be not so much a matter of being in a hurry, it could be more like feeling unsafe. Hubby is professional driver, drives for a living throughout the US, but complained a lot about the drivers on Morse - why re they in such a ** hurry?

2 car lanes + 2 cart lanes = 4 lanes

Yes, I do turn left on Pinellas on occasion when I leave Bonifay, but it definitely makes me nervous. I would not want to do it every day. I would not want to be one of those people who has to do it every day just to get their mail.

Lanes are lanes, they each have vehicular traffic, golf carts aren’t pedestrians. In my city up north, in their great wisdom, they converted two lanes out of four car lanes into bicycle lanes. Now not only do you have to watch for cars when you try to turn but also for these maniac cyclists who do not obey any traffic signs, do not stop for anyone, and will jump on your car hood if they don’t like something you did. It was a lot safer before with 4 car lanes.
