Have fun out there
No, there are only two lefts. There is left and then there is your other left.
But going off road, this is why we say turn driver or turn passenger. Mistakes are costly.
There is a reason for these issues. For a visual thinker, every word has a picture assigned to it. The picture becomes a universal definition for language. The problem is that left and right are directions, and not associated with an absolute object. This is why we confuse left and right. Interestingly, while I always mess up left and right, I never confuse Port and Starboard, because these are absolute sides of the boat, regardless of which way you are facing. Left and right change, but port and starboard do not.
