Q&A - Two Way Left Turn Lane Collision
My house fronts a busy street and when turning left from my drive way in heavy traffic. I generally go through the northbound lane and into the Two Way Left Turn Lane, stop and wait to merge right into the southbound lane. I can’t seem to find legislation saying this is illegal in British Columbia but I haven’t found anything saying it is legal either.
This has become a big issue recently. In the summer, I turned left into the Two Way Left Turn Lane and was waiting to merge right into the southbound traffic lane. A vehicle trying to get around traffic hit me head on. A police office saw it happen, and ticketed the other driver.
Initially ICBC said I was not at fault but a few months later I received a letter saying I have been found 100% liable for the accident. I don’t think this is correct but want to challenge the decisions.
Do you have any information that could assist me in challenging the decision? Or any advice would be helpful.
