Do you do simultaneous right and left turns onto a 2 lane road?
My friend said that no, right turn always has the right of way and you need to wait until all lanes are clear, and that often people will turn into the left lane. Which may be a realistic/overly defensive driving tactic, but so is stopping at green lights in case someone at an adjacent red decides to floor it last second.
It's more a legal minutiae question I guess as the situation isn't that common, and I frankly don't expect most drivers to give it that level of thought, but did have a pretty close call yesterday when someone turned right into "my" lane, and clearly felt I was in the wrong. Any legal beagles care to weight in?
