    U-turn

    We have very few of these in our part of New York. Legal U-Turns, that is.
    In Delaware in general, on most of the interstate highways, the center divider keeps you from turning left into the entrance way for many businesses. So you have to drive by the business that is on your left-hand side and go to the next signal light where there is usually a U-Turn sign.
    At these u-turns, you turn left and keep turning so that you end up going back the direction you came but on the other side of the center barrier.
    Now in most instances, opposing traffic pass each other on the left (driver side to driver side). But at these legal U-Turns opposing traffic make u-turns by passing with passenger side facing pasenger side.
    A little different but it serves the purpose. You get to the side of the road where the business is and turn right into the driveway.

    and then down by the river. If you are lucky enough, pack a lunch and picnic here, or ride bikes! It is a nice town. Check out the little shops along your way.
