    Passing on The Shoulder

    Was reading an article about Deb Reys town hall and found that bill was passed that will allow drivers to pass on the shoulder when there is a vehicle stopped and making a left turn. Its supposed take effect on October 1st.

    Look at it like this, if somebody zips by you on the shoulder while you're waiting your turn TO turn.....left, and he runs off said shoulder and winds up in a ditch etc cuz he was driving too fast., you get a good laugh out of it.
    If the same person passes on the right and takes the paint or a mirror off the right side of your ride; driving by fast or not, you get body work and/or a new paint job.
    If all you are gonna do is give me grief about what I post DON'T READ IT Heh? Have a nice day :-D

    Might as well make it legal. Everyone does it, including the police.

    Can you get a ticket if you are making a right turn, there's no turn lane just a shoulder and you use the shoulder as a turn lane? Make sense?

    How about the jackwagons that wander onto the right shoulder to make their left turns. I'm guessing the overtaking driver would be at fault even though Lane Hog has managed to NOT stay in his lane.

    That makes sense. Actually, around there anymore it's self preservation; gettin' outta the way of all the speeders. "As long as you do it safely" is what you might hear.

    Far right passing lane? "Far right" sounds like the right-turn-only lane.
