I watched a big 18 wheeler turn the tightest corner ever --unimaginable. The line of cars going--let's say--north were stopped at the light and the cross traffic had a green light. The truck pulled out into this very ordinary intersection to make a right turn--going south, and I thought, well-here we go, we'll all be stuck while he does a 10 point turn. Lo! he pulled just so far out and turned the cab and accelerated a bit, then VOILA he pulled right into the appropriate southbound lane. I looked at his face when he passed me, but he didn't seem to be thinking he'd done anything out of the ordinary. Then, another truck a few cars behind him executed the same turn, on a dime.

That's something new.
