When a motorist wants to make a turn at an intersection, and is in the farthest opposite lane from the direction she needs to turn, and so cuts across 5 lanes of traffic to do so. The name comes from Northern Virginia, where drivers frequently make this sort of maneuver due to talking on the phone or applying makeup.
Today's commute sucked, I had to wait through two extra cycles of the light because some woman pulled a Nova turn and made everyone miss the light
