    "Turn second right"

    Being told to "turn second right" ("go along XY street, then turn second right..."), what is it that I should do? Am I supposed to take the second turning on my right, OR turn right at the second crossroads, counting the last one I don't go through without turning as the starting point (regardless of the simple fact there's no turning right at the first of the two crossroads...)? Many thanks.

    Pass one right. That's the first right. Turn at the one after that. That's the second right.
