    If you want to have precisely spaced plowed rows to facilitate later mechanized planting, weeding, harvesting, etc., this might be one way to remove driver-induced locating errors. It still seems unnecessarily anal to me but I know nothing of farming so...

    My first thought exactly -- our Ford Jubilee and subsequent 2000 made nice sharp turns. Dad called them "military corners" when he did it, for example when pulling a grain drill planting soybeans. Although this is an interesting idea, if the fellow who invented it knew how to use the wheel brakes to get the same results, he may not have bothered inventing it.

    now that idea would be useful in most cities where if you pull past to set up for your parallel parking maneuver some idiot will zip right in behind you and thank you with a 1 fingered salute for saving him the parking space.

    Gotta love that license plate too. I wasn't able to place it here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vehicl..._of_California . But, 3 numbers plus one letter is 10 * 10 * 10 * 26 = just 26,000 combinations, assumedly for all of California.
