    "next exit" on the freeway, for what most of us meant as "this exit."  Much hilarity and occasional stress ensued.  

    The definitive words is:

    The use of "this" for "the one directly ahead" and "next" for the one after that, enables differentiating between the two, whereas the use of "next" for "the one directly ahead" does not.  

    Thus, the "this / next" formulation is more useful than using "next" for both cases.
