I vaguely recall that, but I'll have to study to see what you're talking 
about, shortly.

Also, I often see a center lane for left turns in both directions, as in
That's next on my list.  It's currently tagged as a two lane road just a bit 
west of the intersection I referred to earlier.  Note the solid yellow lines 
which usually means "do not cross" to me, so I think I'll have to look up the 
law before I attempt to tag it.
