    Bear

    "In 100 meters bear right, then turn right."

    That's what the navigator in my car told me. Is there a difference between bearing and turning right? If there are several lanes, "bear" might mean switch into the right lane first and then turn right. Not sure.

    Thanks!

    Re: Bear

    I hope you pulled the car over before posting this message!

    Yes, "bear right" means to stay towards the right. The road could divide and you have to stay to the right. Or it could be, as you suggest, that you need to move to the right in preparation for turning right.
