My question answered. The turn-outs in eastern Canada (I haven't driven
in western) are for traffic in the same direction. If a car leads a
parade at less than the speed limit, it is mandatory that it turn into
one and permit the parade to pass.
I remember the system of Scottish passing places you describe on one-
track suburban trolley lines (back when we had trolleys in suburbia).
The same system exists in Alaska on trails used by grizzly bears.
Politeness (at least deference) is the rule there too.
Engineering is the art of making what you want from things you can get.
