In a ruling observers say is the most exciting thing to happen to left-hand turns since the invention of passenger side airbags, the Georgia Supreme Court today overturned a 2006 law requiring drivers turning left onto a multi-lane roadway to turn into the left-lane.

The Supreme Court says the law's wording is "unconstitutionally vague" and states "a person of common intelligence could not determine with reasonable definiteness that the statute prohibits the making of a left turn into the right lane of a multi-lane roadway."
