T - Turning circle

05 June 2006

Turning circle - The distance a car travels to complete a full circle with the steering wheel at full lock. Two different measurements can be quoted, either between kerbs, which looks at the distance travelled by the wheels, or between walls, which considers the width of the whole car. What Car? quotes the distance between kerbs, because in most cases you will be turning round on a road.
