    Here’s an idea: why do some slow drivers insist on driving in the left lane & what is the annualized cost to society for their behavior? Also, why do people stop their shopping carts in the middle of the aisle and how can they be so oblivious to the other people around them shopping who want to get by? It would seem to be an evolutionary disadvantage to be so unaware of other humans nearby.

    In the US, traffic law states that you can always turn right on crossings if there's nobody coming, even during red light if there's no designated right turn traffic light. From that perspective, it would be fuel efficient, and from an logistical view, it's far better to optimize routes with less turns. However, in Europe, UPS and the big parcel shipping giants (DHL, GLS, DPD) have come up with an idea to just cut off the cost of a route manager and the whole optimization story, as well as cut off the costs for the fuel and the drivers. Instead, they outsorce the shipping to customers completely to "partners", who earn money per package and employ drivers paid on a fixed wage, who work from e.g. 4am until they're finished. With the example of 120 stops, they'd be finished by late afternoon approximately. Imagine driving straight from 7am till 6-7pm, without extra pay, without any other benefits, often without break because it takes time.

    As a delivery driver who is averaging 320 stops/day, I can confirm this is a complicated process, but our DIADs do not reduce any left turns in my area at least. I make just as many left as right, but it does have us backtrack on the route which is also supposed to be restricted....
