Assunto:  Re: to pull off x to turn off
 
Mensagem:  Ricky, Made a mistake. No, it cannot. While "turned off at the next exit" means "left the road one's car rode on) for another at the next exit," "pulled off" more often than not suggests that you "simply drove away not a long distance from the road you car rode on and parked, at which point you got out of the car, picked up your digital video camera and started shooting the scenery for any length of time. When you felt you had filmed enough of the scenery, you then turned off your camera, walked back to your car and drove on." Recapitulating, "pulled off" = "temporarily parked close to or not far from the main road". "Turned off" = "left one road for another." Hope OP's suggestions help better. I always seem to provide lengthy, long-winded speeches of nothing about nothing.
