Oh my God!!!! What street is this so I can avoid it like the plague when I visit NJ? I can't believe these are actual markings.

Haha, that's hilarious. Whoever designed that crossing must've been drunk out of his mind.

Judging by the angle, turning left from the left lane it would be nearly impossible to check for traffic, and actually impossible to make the turn with a semi. Is it a road that trucks use?

Then again, is the crossing street one way to the right? I'd like to see the road layout there.

Definitely a WTF moment coming upon it for the first time.

Wow - a nice one.

Almost as bad as parking signs in NYC

I thought left turns were illegal in New Jersey, along with pumping gasoline and liability insurance.

that's an exceptional NYC sign! I love it. A bit too restrictive but I love it cuz in the past the signs have kept me wondering even though "in theory" it was a legitimate spot
