Thread: Passing on The Shoulder

    I equate it with using the sidewalk to pass on the right.
    Is it acceptable for bicyclists to temporarily use a travel lane if the shoulder is blocked, e.g. due to a temporary sign ?

    Why should lane use be exclusive ? Of course, there is risk in passing on the shoulder as you can't see around the vehicle in the travel lane. It just has to be don with care that you don't nail someone emptying his mailbox.

    Because right here in this very forum* I made a complete jackass out of myself arguing that it was not against the law.
    Then I did research and saw that I was wrong.



    And I had to degrade and demean myself by apologizing in front of God and everyone like I was some kind of filthy clueless peasant.




    *Or one of the forums. I think it was here.

    If you want a law passed, take that up with your local legislators. It will take a little more effort than posting on a forum but if you really wanted it, don't make excuses, try to make it happen. You'd be surprised at the number of new laws that get passed because someone woke up one morning and thought, " I just want a law passed.....".

    Yes, and they have; however, this new law didn't come from nowhere. My guess is that a citizen, or citizens, just like you and me availed themselves of the legislative process and it worked.

    Tell that to the azzhats that cross them every single day when they try to sneak into traffic right before the signal light after riding that right lane at 70MPH!

    Let's face it folks.....
    Texting while driving is going to continue here.
    Passing on the right; bike lane or no bike lane; is going to continue here.
    Changing lanes without signaling (or looking beforehand) is going to continue here.
    Well, there's three.....
    If all you are gonna do is give me grief about what I post DON'T READ IT Heh? Have a nice day :-D
