Never heard the term "K-turns" before so I had to look it up. Seems it's what I've always called a "3 point turn". I wonder if one is an US term and the other is Canadian?

Thank you for looking it up as I had never heard it before either. But by the time I'd finished reading the thread, I'd forgotten.

Maybe it's an East Coast thing as I've always heard three-point turn, too.

Whipping a Broderick

Remember the old series Highway Patrol with Broderick Crawford? Every week it seemed that Broderick would meet a fleeing suspect and have to turn around in the road. He would do a transmission blowing three point turn including spraying shoulder gravel as he headed down the highway to apprehend the suspect. Later my brothers and I learned this was called a three point turn but the indelible mental tattoo was done as we had already named the manouver " whipping a Broderick" and that's what we still call it today. " Whip a Broderick, Bruce, I think I saw a pheasant in that brush back there"
