Keep calling thing's out it keeps u focused also they call it a obstacle course because it's 2 turns u have to manuver properly by remember ur pivot points also there is a crazy Left after servicing a BS on coming traffic turning n also Left lane turning. Look at it b4 u execute.

No the bus stop is on the right b4 the corner. There's 2 turning right lanes ur on the right at the bs now there's a right turning Lane on ur Left. Facing u (on coming traffic) r also turning. So u block ur left side From turning in front of u n u pull up to block on coming traffic from turning

We were down town Manhattan today we did a turn like that we made a right service the BS then made a left but we could not make the left onto incoming traffic so we blocked the traffic on the left we set up the turn keeping the bus straight as soon as our light turn red we make turn but the left turn u have to set it up or else ur left rear wheel will end up on the island on the left side
