I seem to recall a MythBusters segment which said that using only right turns wasn't optimal

Because they can't see me in my cute little car, so they just don't turn that way.

there is a street near me that is a T. UPS truck comes down it turns right goes 200 feet and street ends so he make the circle at the end of the street and then heads back up the street as if he had made a left hand turn. Seem them do this almost daily.
