Many People Especially those who are just starting out, get confused about this concept.
Doing a 180 does not mean that you should do it on the same street, the previous example clearly shows what you should and should not do. Obviously in some cases such as one way, you will have to do a rare 180
This is not correct. According to the ATC Manual, it states “Make 180 (Controllers must ensure that the aircraft has the space required to make a 180 degree turn on the taxiway)” which indicates that the “Make 180” command is intended to be used on the same taxiway.
Other than that, great job! Very detailed explanations.
