Q&A - Right Turn Conflict With Motorcycle

Q&A ImageI was driving a Nissan xterra (fairly large vehicle) south on Ziprick just past Costco in Kelowna. As I approached the three way intersection I observed there was a motorcycle near the center lane with his right turn indicator flashing. As he was in what appeared to me as the straight thru lane I assumed he had left his indicator on in error.

Q&A - Right of Way at a Two Way Stop

Q&A ImageMy question is regarding the right of way at a regular two way stop sign. When turning left after coming to a stop are you required to yield to all traffic coming straight through?

Q&A - U-Turns Around Wide Boulevards

Q&A ImageI hope you don't mind a question about U-Turn that always puzzles me. On a 4-lane street (2 lanes in each direction) with a large boulevard in between, can a driver turn left and stop at that boulevard, when traffic is clear, turn left again on that road?

So this car would end up driving in the opposite direction. Does this action considered an illegal U-Turn?

Q&A - Left Turn When Vision Blocked

Q&A ImageI am heading north and making a left turn at an intersection to the west side. On my opposite side in the intersection to my north there is a big truck heading south making a left turn to the east side. The truck is blocking me from seeing the cars passing it on the opposite side in the passing lane.

The car behind me keeps honking me to make the left turn and the driver shouts "Go! Go!"

Q&A - Left Turn Over Single Solid Line

Q&A ImageOn my way home from dropping my daughter at school I turn left onto my street at an intersection and then need to turn left immediately again as my house is the 1st driveway. I do so over a single yellow line and am often getting honks etc. I don't think they're aware I'm turning into a driveway although I do signal... Am I wrong or are they?

Passing and Turning for Bike Lanes

Bike Lane MarkingWould you write an article on bike lanes? Please explain whether a bike in a bike lane can pass on the right of a car and the proper way for cars to turn right through a bike lane.

Turning Left is Complicated

Two Lane Left Turn SignHow much time do you have to look, decide and then execute a left turn in heavy traffic? Do you feel pushed by the drivers behind you into making that decision quickly? If you cannot "check your six" quickly and confidently, it's time to wait for certainty.

Q&A - Turning Left on an Amber Light

Q&A ImageI would like to have a clarification on how to do a left turn on amber light. At a big intersection with a green light, a vehicle is on a complete stop waiting for a safe gap to do a left turn.

Left Turn Into the Wrong Lane

Improper Left TurnI've noticed a new way to do left turns onto a busy four lane highway near my home. You stop at the stop sign on the side road, look both ways, then turn left, head on into the left turn lane on the highway. Once there, you check behind and move right into the fast lane if there is room. If not, you stop and wait until there is room to proceed.

Q&A - Changing Lanes In an Intersection

Q&A ImageToday I was almost in a traffic collision. I was turning right and people across the intersection were turning left. The street we were turning onto had two lanes either side of the centre. I assumed all of the people turning left would end their turn in the left-most lane because they were turning out of the only left turn lane and I was taught you shouldn't change langes in an interection.
