Left TurnSituation puzzles (sometimes called lateral thinking puzzles) are ones where you need to ask lots of yes or no questions to figure out what happened in the situation. These are good puzzles for groups where one person knows the puzzle and answers the questions.
A man was driving along a busy road with a constant stream of traffic coming in the opposite direction. Suddenly, hardly even slowing down, he turns left into a side road. None of the oncoming traffic slowed or stopped for him, but he hit no-one and no-one hit him. In fact, nobody even seemed bothered.
AnswerHe was driving in the UK (or another country that drives on the left). There was, therefore, no oncoming traffic to give way to.
