At a "diverging diamond interchange" you cross over at a traffic signal to the other (left) side of the road just before crossing the highway, and back to the normal (right) side at another signal afterwards. (This is done to make left turns on and off the highway easier.)

There are newer overpasses where traffic passes to the left only to merge with the right. These are common in Utah, Idaho, and in other growing areas. Apparently it increases flow.

I hate everything about that garage. Worst design ever. I avoid it at all costs.

Zion Crossroads, VA. This is a fairly new traffic pattern.

Yeah, slow drivers do it on the Interstates and other limited-access highways all the time.

Take a look at this intersection in North Brunswick, NJ.

I would try and explain how this one works, but I still haven't quite figured it out myself as I drive through it everyday when I go to work. It's a headache and a pain in the ass.
