    That diagram is wrong labeling the jug handle as "incorrect." It might be very correct especially in the event of a tight intersection with a 4 wheeler pulled up beyond the white line or where you can't buttonhook the turn for some reason. Either could be appropriate depending on the intersection and traffic at the time.

    Very rarely have I heard the term myself to be honest. Most people I know call it a “J hook” turn. But they know what it means.

    I assumed "button hook" is like a blocking right turn. You swing out to the left so your rear blocks a car from trying to get inside your turn.

    Button hooks as the 21st century schools now call it don’t work very well with old school long trucks with manual steering boxes. You have to start the turn from the left long before that.
