 Spanish term or phrase: DIAMETRO DE GIRO ENTRE ACERAS This is a dimension for a van, but how would this be rendered in English?
 English translation:turning diameter / turning radius Explanation:when you design a corner of a street you calculate the turning radius, which is the radius needed for a vehicle to turn around the corner. So, in this case it should be turning diamenter. HTH :-)
