B.C.'s Bad Driver of the Week 2
BC's Bad Driver of the Week this week is one that has difficulty turning left from a business parking lot onto a busy highway. The vehicle turns into a two way left turn lane, drives along it for about a block and then moves to the right when traffic moves enough to let the driver in. Legally, the only way out of a two way left turn lane is to turn left. Moving out of it the way this driver did is an offence. The risk involved is hinted at in the words "two way." Traffic coming the other way may also use this lane to turn left and if this driver is busy watching to the right trying to merge a head on collision is a very real possibility. Collision aside, this behaviour also makes it difficult for oncoming drivers to use the lane.
