Left Turn Economics

UPS saved three million gallons of gas and reduced 28.5 million miles off its delivery routes. How? By reducing the number of left-hand turns. Read on

Some questions now.

1) How can we implement such a thing in India? Does the complementary rule - Reduce right-hand turns - help?
2) Can we derive an optimal number for the small vans (shorter trips) big vans (longer trips, complex turn schedules? ) combination.
3) Incorporate drop off schedule based on local traffic patterns?
