It’s like turning right into a two lane road where the right lane is unoccupied.

But the left lane has traffic. You're legally entitled to the lane but it’s risky since the left lane traffic could change lanes.

Now if everybody signaled properly, full 3 seconds before changing lanes, this wouldn’t be an issue. But today’s $#!+ty driver changes lanes without warning so it’s dangerous.

Similar to your entitled Marine. He made a drastic lane change without warning putting you in harms ways. Defensive driving would say to assume the other driver is a piece of $#!+. Riding a motorcycle for the past 2 decades has taught me to trust no other driver on the road, always assume they are not looking out for you and they will do whatever they want on the road even if it’s putting your safety at risk.

480ute icon NEW: This isn't a new phenomenon though. People have been turning into the incorrect lane since driving was invented.

LA Ute icon NEW: I'd say 80% of drivers, when they turn right, take the inside lane in that situation. (I don't, unless there's no other traffic visible anywhere.) When I am turning left in the situation you describe...

LA Ute icon NEW: Yes. But for some people, like me, the rules really don't apply. The problem is that so many others erroneously think the same thing about themselves. (nm)

The Thrill icon NEW: We call them “short-timers”. They won’t be riding bikes for very long even if they survive their accident.
