When in doubt turn right.

Here is a great blog post I found on UPS explaining why they avoid left turns.

“What we found: A significant cause of idling time resulted from drivers making left turns, essentially going against the flow of traffic. From there we explored routes where these turns were cut out entirely, and then compared data.”

This is a great example of using data to improve efficiency and in turn bottom line for business.
