Don’t Turn Left!

In 2001, UPS announced their new course of action to save time and money which required their truck drivers to turn right whenever possible.  Left-turn movements raise safety and congestion concerns, and therefore, right turns increase intersection efficiency.  The UPS wasn’t the first to introduce this concept – the “Jersey Jug-handle” and “Michigan Left” were early models of this idea.  Efficiency is a skill Stonefield continues to perfect by employing a variety of techniques to ensure quality assurance and quality control throughout all stages of the project development process to provide quality work in a timely fashion.
