No. We have plenty of those "Slow Traffic Keep Right" lanes here, too,
often a third lane on one side of a four-lane divided highway. I meant
those short turn-outs, often only a few car lengths, nestled into a
convenient spot along the road.

Route 17 through New York State, once the main route from New York City
(via route 17 in New Jersey) to Erie PA and Buffalo, was three lanes
much of the way when I was a kid). It replaced an older two-lane road in
the early 30s. There were two lanes up hills and one lane down. In
straight-aways, the center was for passing in both directions. On
curves, passing in only one direction was permitted. Through towns, the
center lane was often reserved as a waiting lane for left turns, a
system now in use on roads near my central NJ home.
