No. That would be a 4 lane road. 2 lane road is just that 2 lanes. One in each direction.

Difference between road lane and line?

The difference between a road lane and a line is the direction of travel on the roadway.

Which driver must yield on a narrow two lane highway?

If there are two lanes (one in each direction) why is there a need for any driver to yield). If it is a single track road, then there will be passing places (pull ins) and the driver nearest to one should be the one that uses it. In cases where a two lane road narrows to a single lane road for a short stretch, this point will either be controlled by lights or will have road signage indicating which direction of traffic has priority.

What lane should you turn into if the road has four lanes?


When making a left turn you should turn from the lane nearest the center line or a dedicated turn lane and into?

When turning onto a road with two or more lanes you should turn into the nearest lane. If the road you are turning from has two lanes marked for turning left there will usually be broken lane lines through the turn to show the lanes you should stay in. If they are worn away the furthest lane left turns into the nearest lane and the second lane from the left turns into the second lane from the left of the road you are turning onto. Once on the new road and it is clear you can start changing lanes. Its a bad idea to change lanes during the turn as if there is an accident you could be ticketed for an unsafe lane change

When completing your left turn you may turn into what lane?

That depends. On a two-lane road, your left turn should keep you inside the right lane where you are turning. On a road with two left turn lanes, merging into a 2+ lane road, and you are in the far left turning lane, both lanes of traffic stay in their current lanes -- so you would still be in the left lane after the turn -- this is only on multiple lane roadways. After you complete the turn, you can merge into the right lane when safe to do so and if permitted.

When driving in wind crosswind what side of road should you drive on?

Obviously if it is a two-land road there is one lane in each direction, so the law dictates which side--right in most of the world, left in the U. K. If there are two lanes for the direction you are going, you still have to consider other traffic even if you do have a crosswind. If I were on a multi-lane road with no other traffic and a strong crosswind, I would drive in the up-wind lane so if a gust blew me to the side, it would be to another lane, not to the shoulder or the median.

When may you drive in the left lane of as road with four or more lanes with two way traffic?

Law for stopping for school bus on a four lane road in Washington State?

Drivers in Washington state are not required to stop for a school bus on any highway (Under Washington law, any public road is defined as a highway) with three or more lanes when traveling in the opposite direction.This has been interpreted to mean that when approaching a bus from the opposite direction on a normal road with a turn lane, or a road with two lanes in each direction, etc., a driver is not required to stop their vehicle. This is an unusual law, but arguably leads to a higher safety level for children, as they are then required to be dropped on the same side of the road as the bus exit on anything greater than a two-lane road as provided by RCW 46.61.370. Ohio has a similar exception for roads with four or more lanes.

Which is the fast lane on a 3 lane road?

There is no "fast" lane - all lanes are bound by the speed limit of that road. Basic rules of the road dictate that slow traffic keep to the right, and that the lefthand lanes be used for passing (this is in countries which drive on the right - in countries which drive on the left, it would be the opposite).

How does the move over law in Virginia work?

I have court soon for "Failure to Yield to Stationary Emergency Vehicle". I have read the Virginia law section 46.2-921.1 I was mainly wondering what constitutes a 4 lane highway as stated in that section. "on a highway having at least four lanes, at least two of which are intended for traffic proceeding as the approaching vehicle, proceed with caution and, if reasonable, with due regard for safety and traffic conditions, yield the right-of-way by making a lane change into a lane not adjacent to the stationary vehicle" Let me first explain the road I was driving on was 3 lanes, a median, then three lanes in the opposite direction. Is this a 6 lane road? or a 3 lane? I would also like to know if a turning lane counts as the 4th lane, if the road is only 3 lanes.
