Q&A - Who Goes First, Left Turn or Straight Through?
Q: I'm looking for your assistance in settling a debate. This depicts the camera vehicle making a left turn in front of a vehicle proceeding straight through the intersection around a left turning vehicle. The camera operator is of the thought that since there is only one lane of travel that the vehicle should have waited behind the left turning vehicle and that the camera operator had the right of way. The white vehicle made an illegal pass on the right.
I argue that as per section 158 of the MVA that the white car was permitted to pass the left turning vehicle on the right and had right of way in the intersection (158)(1)(a).
What are your thoughts?
