and there are at least 3 entrances / exits in that span of road before you are forced to turn. Vehicles on 235 have the right of way, but if some is screaming down the turn lane - "accelerating to merge", they over take the slower traffic in the right lane trying to exit 235 - forcing the vehicles on 235 to brake.So you're one of those guys that stops at a Yield sign?? Case in point, coming off Buck Hewitt onto SB 235..You have close to a half mile "RIGHT TURN" lane before Exploration Dr..but it's a RIGHT TURN lane, so you stop at the Yield and dart into the through traffic lane when able just cuz you don't wanna appear stupid...
The same #### plays out at every intersection. You are correct, yield does not mean you are required to stop. But if there is no opening in the traffic, in which to merge, acceleration in the turn lane with vehicles trying to move right to slow and exit, is a sure fire way to have or cause an accident
Should mention that one reason I am happy to block the cut thru (like the one at the Deloitte building, is that I don't believe most people making the left or a U-turn have a clear view of all three lanes plus the turn lane. Conversely, the vehicles in the other two lanes and the turn lane have their vision of the cut thru blocked by traffic in the left most lane.
Stopping and waiving the vehicle on gives the driver the false sense they are clear to go. Which most often they are not.
Not even the smallest of cars can keep their turn in one lane, they inadvertently spill into the adjacent lane.
