“I make that turn off of Carpenter onto Rainwater several times a day in a super-long wheelbase pickup truck. The secret to negotiating the turn (until it's fixed) is to give a turn signal well in advance and slow down enough to allow yourself to turn with precision. Yes, you might get rear-ended, but you won't go into the ditch.”
