off of a road
with Jersey barrier
s or a large median
, designed to connect to a cross street
. The cross street
often intersects with the road
at a traffic light
or goes over the main road
with a ramp
, but at any rate, traffic is not allowed to turn from the main road to the cross street at the intersection itself. If it's a traffic light intersection, there will be large signs saying "NO TURNS
", if it's a ramp, well, you can't get there from here
If you use Mapquest to get directions in New Jersey that require you to use a jughandle, the directions will say "turn RIGHT down UNNAMED ROAD". Jughandles are hard to give directions around unless you're familiar with them already. If so, you can just tell people to take the jughandle or just to turn right or left at the intersection and they'll know how to sort out the jughandles when they get there. If not, you're attempting to piece together fragments of road in a way that makes sense, and will likely drive people insane.
You will learn jughandles if you drive in New Jersey.
