    Gotcha. I usually don't get on the shoulder.

    I don't think it's by accident that they pull right. I've seen people at the Rt 4 entrance to WW straddle the line to block people from making a right, I've seen it at other traffic lights as well.

    I do agree it's a waste of fuel to have people backed up behind someone waiting to make a left, but you have to be concerned for the people that use the shoulder to walk and bike ride

    Does it matter? It's not like it is being policed or anything...

    I don't know how anyone can mistake that lane for other than what it's marked as, no where do you see a MERGE LEFT arrow or sign.
    What you do see is RIGHT LANE for RIGHT TURNS only and right turn arrows painted all down the lane.

    But it's used for everything but right turns and the state and county Mounties don't do squat about it.
    Drivers are starting to get into the turn lane as far back as Town Creek Drive since there are no physical barriers between there and Rt 4.

    I got pulled over in Owings a couple of years ago for passing on the shoulder. He "let me go" with a warning, even though I see marked patrol cars doing it all the time.

    Well, at the very least they are breaking the law if they continue through that lane by the new Urgent Care. That lane is marked Right Turn ONLY at that intersection. If they continue straight then technically they broke the law with a moving violation.
