So I've noticed in my area of Northern New Jersey that a few of the four lane major thoroughfares have had sections replaced with a three lane "turning lane" and shoulders, instead of the old four cramped lanes and no shoulders.

Which do you, netizens of CD, prefer?

I think there are definitely problems with both. Numero uno with the three lanes is that they haven't been that common place in my area in NJ, and people might get a little confused. It's a small concern, because they're easy enough to grasp and it shouldn't be an issue at all in a year or so. Issue B is that they're definitely slower, no more passing the old lady going below the speed limit or dodging the person trying to make a right turn. Related to this, they're probably a lot safer because people aren't weaving in and out and are generally going slower. Three lane roads can also handle less traffic in general.
