Q&A - Lane Use Signs
From our understanding of the learning guide with the road sign in picture 4 (sign straight or right turn) says that you are to move into correct lane prior to passing road sign cause once you pass road sign you have to now commit to that direction and you also can't cross over solid white line. Where I'm confused and sounds a bit of a contradiction is that ICBC says the white line doesn't go up that far and we have to wait til we get to the end to pick where we are wanting to go to.
This issue has come up because my fiancee was on her moped with me driving behind her when a smart car crossed over double solid line and they are trying to say she wasn't suppose to be there and so we read the book and a lot of people interpreted it the same way I have so just wanting to get a straight forward answer.
From the Learn to Drive Smart manual:
Lane use signs
Signs showing which lanes may be used to turn or go straight are mounted above the lane or at the side of the lane before the intersection. If you are in a designated lane, you must follow the direction indicated by the arrows. You may not move into or out of a designated lane while you are in an intersection.
