Michigan left turn
 n.— «Drivers leaving Wal-Mart will be prohibited from taking a left onto U.S. 17 and instead will have to execute what’s known as a “Michigan left turn.” This requires drivers to make a right turn from the side road and then move to the far left lane and into a median crossover. They then make a U-turn to travel in the opposite direction, but not before coming to a stop and waiting for a green light.» —“Bring on the traffic” by Shannan Bowen in Leland Star-News (Wilmington, North Carolina) Mar. 11, 2007.
