City Traffic and the Environmental Impact of the Left Turn


New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/25/2021 -- Identifying opportunities to reduce city traffic is something that has occupied some of the best engineers and planners in the country for many years. One of the simplest ways to do this has now been put forward by courier business UPS. According to UPS, eliminating left turns could have a very wide range of benefits, from convenience to environmental impact. This conclusion has come from a decision made by UPS in 2004 to minimize the left turns taken by its drivers, in particular the left turns that are necessary when drivers are sitting and waiting to cross over traffic. According to UPS, eliminating left turns saves 20,000 tons of carbon emissions and 10 million gallons of fuel. It has made the firm much more efficient, allowing it to deliver an additional 350,000 packages. Due to the success that has been achieved by removing left hand turns from delivery routes the question now being asked is whether cities should seek to make similar changes in order to help reduce traffic.
