To turn or cruise; what do you do?

KIMBERLY RUBIO STAFF WRITER.
The misuse of the center turn lane is a common occurrence around town, and to some drivers it is a major pet peeve while others are in the dark about its proper use. The turn lane is the lane in the center of many streets and highways that both directions of traffic can use to make left turns. In Uvalde, there is a center turn lane on Main and Getty streets. The Texas Driver’s Handbook regards the turning lane as a way for drivers to safely make left turns from the roadway. “The center lane should never be used for passing or as a through-traffic lane,” it reads.
