Turn “Into”/”In to”

Just a reminder:

We have an idiom turn into. It means “to become.”

…When he drinks, he turns into a monster…
…He turned into someone I don’t even recognize…

Since this is true, we have to alter turn in to when it means to actually turn.

…He turned in to the wrong roadway…
…He turned in to the street from there…

…He pulled into the driveway…
…He drove into the driveway…
…He moved into the driveway…

…He turned in to the driveway.

Happy punctuating!
