  • Is this a turning lane or not

    Ok, here is the story, there is a Walmart supercenter and a few stores
    that me and my dad go to, well, there is what looks like to some and
    even to me, a tunning lane, but its not, and I have known a few people
    that got tickets for using it like that,

    well any way, me and my dad were out shopping, he has never got stopped,
    or got a ticket in his life, always does the speed limit etc etc, and never
    uses that as a turning lane, he sits at the light and waits, with his
    turning light on, then turns, when its green, a guy in a big truck tries
    to take the short cut and almost rear ends my dad,the guy honks and
    gives him the bird, we park, and the guy parks next to us, I don't pay
    any attention to the guy and start walking to the store, my dad is a
    little slower than me, he is like 60, the guy starts the truck up and
    drives around and tries to hit my dad and drives away, he saw the truck
    just in time to push away from it, the guy speeds off, the guy is lucky he
    did not hurt my dad because I would have killed him over that,
    never got the license plate

    but see what you think about the lay out of the road

    the yellow is the lane in question, the red bars are the stop lights

    If the white line is solid then it is not a turning lane.

      Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
      How about the Wiki?

        Right, solid white means do not cross it. It's just extra space semis.

            Red ALWAYS means stop, but in some states, you are allowed to turn Right on a red.

            In California, a solid white line means "cross with care" or only cross "when safe".

            "solid white line is an advisory or strong suggestion directing the driver to stay in their lane. It is however not against the law……UNLESS……you hit something then it is your fault. Or……UNLESS……you cause the car next to you to have a collision or even a near collision then again it is your fault. If you encounter a solid white line and by crossing it you do not endanger your fellow driver you may cross it"

                I would tend to think that a turning lane, would always have a section where it is dashed to allow for people to get into the lane, and then solid. If it is solid the entire way I dont think it can be a turning lane.

                Because even if the solid white line means "cross with care", I have never seen one that is the entire length of a turning lane...

                  A bicycle lane is shown by a solid white line along either side of the street, four or more feet from the curb. The white line will usually be broken near the corner and the words "BIKE LANE" will be painted in the lane. When you are making a right turn and are within 200 feet of the corner or other driveway entrance, you must enter the bike lane for the turn. Do not drive in the bike lane at any other time.
                  Uh oh. Maybe it was your dads fault.

                    Don't most WalMarts have cameras in the parking lots? If you can get his plates, at a minimum that is assault with a deadly weapon, possibly attempted murder.

                      yea you can do a right on red here, to you just have to stop first,

                      yea its a solid white line,

                      it was to far away for the cameras at walmart and it was in that
                      little shopping center you see to your top right, and they don't
                      have cameras

                      LOL "BIKE LANE" Arkansas is to poor to spend money on bike lanes,
                      or side walks, or sewer lines, clean drinking water, schools

                          thats and ugly intersectiong, but its not a turning lane its prob for semi's. Id talk to city council and explain your concern and ask for traffic lights. Does it have traffic lights?

                              thats a turn lane painted by a guy too lazy to lift his hand and make it a dotted line

                              otherwise the solid white at the end would not strech the whole way..and if you take a close look its 2 lanes wide!!

                              also if you can turn right on red in your state then the white lines are not a do not cross line..


                              in canada you can pass on double yellow lines...all lines and on road markings are strictly advisory..... but like as others said dont get into any kind of accident or your completely at fault.

                              solid white is the "oooh gee...ya probably shouldn't" but not illegal.
                              never cross a line without checking your mirrors first
                              never take anything for granted
                              get your family's eyes checked...didn't you get in an accident in your own driveway too?
