As a USian, I'm really confused by this description of turning.
Could you please explain the term "tangle turning"?
If you were to perform a tangle turn in the US, when you turn left,
you cut around the vehicle turning left the other way, sort of a
vehicular dosey-do.

I've never seen this maneuver performed.  I'm going to have to question
your assertion that this is an American habit.  It may, of course, exist
in some regions ...

actually i think this used to be reccommended behaviour at traffic lights, but doesn't seem to be the norm now :-( to do this, it needs some cooperation from the on-coming stream of traffic, aka intelligence :-)
