Must you get in the left lane when passing a vehicle pulled over on a 4 lane road in North Carolina?
When safe and possible to do so, yes, you should get into the left lane. - this is a safer way of passing and should avoid an accident if the pulled over vehicle suddenly decides to pull out onto the roadway.
Who has the right of way in a road when two lanes turn into one and there is no lane straight but both merge into the one lane in England?
I don't know about England, but, there should be a warning sign or arrows indicating that a lane is going to merge. Also, the person who is there first should have the right way.
There was a bike lane installed in Charleston, SC in August 1896. Don't know if it was the first though.
The difference between a road lane and a line is the direction oftravel on the roadway. In a road lane situation, there are usuallytwo lanes divided by a white dotted line, traveling in the samedirection. If there is a center line, (yellow solid or yellowdotted) the direction of travel is one lane e…ach way. ( Full Answer )

In MOST states that I'm aware of, you don't have to IF it's a highway DIVIDED by a physical barrier (e.g.: median strip - crash barriers - etc). However, if it isn't divided, you are required to stop.
One Answer: The first indoor bowling lane was created in 1840 at Knickerbockers of New York City. The Lighter Side: Right beside the second.
Lanes are usually about 11-12 feet wide, so a road with two lanes (one lane going in each direction) would be between 22 and 24 feet wide. A road with two lanes in each direction would be between 44 and 48 feet wide.
It depends on what type of road or parking area the lane is in. I remember working for an Architect who did a lot of bank work, which have drive-thru lanes. The width of the lane at the outdoor teller station was either 7' or 8' wide, depending upon the preference of the owner. It also depends o…n any turns, too. If you have a tight turn, you need a wide mouth at the turn. Refer to Federal Highway Standards. ( Full Answer )
A weave lane is the part of the highway or freeway where both anentrance and exit exist. It is called this because cars will beweaving in and out of lanes to either enter or exit.
A short lane at the end of an entrance ramp that allowsentering traffic to build up speed, before merging in to intomain travel lanes.
The lane is between the lines of the paint (the lines where the players line up rebound a foul shot) all the way down the court.
The standard with of a highway road link is dependent upon the typeof Highway. Interstate highways have a standard with of 14 feet
A typical lane width is considered to be 12ft but does vary depending on the type of road and the location as some municipalities may vary. While the U.S. Department of Transportation maintains a breakdown of statistics for the lane widths of Interstate & arterial roads that deviate from the 12ft s…tandard, most highway departments simply measure a Lane Mile as a single lane running for 5280ft, regardless of the width. Obviously if you are calculating to precise measurements, such as the number of square feet, you would either need to do some averaging, or have an extremely large supply of very rugged tape measures.

\nHorse and carriage width. It was used as a tradition. Train/Trolley tracks were even made at the width of the wheels of a carriage.
It depends on which country you are in. Countries may drive on the left or right carriageway and local rules may apply to lanes.
Usually lanes 4&5 are given to the fastest runners in the race because they are able to be seen by all other athletes and push the others to run faster.
In general you should drive in the right lane and use the left lane only to pass when necessary. (On some stretches of I-20 and I-35 you'll see this posted.) If traffic is heavy, you should stay in the lane that's going the speed you want to drive; usually this is slower in the right lane and faster… in the left lane. If by "four lane road" you mean four lanes in each direction, that's personal preference -- I leave the far left to the speed demons, the far right to people getting on and off, and second from the right to the tractor-trailers; my preference is second from the left. The goal is to allow traffic to flow smoothly. Going too slow in the "fast" lane causes traffic to back up (and get mad at you), and rapid lane changes can cause accidents. Pick a lane and stick to it, and go the same speed as those around you -- if everyone did this, we'd all get there on time. ( Full Answer )
1) Let's start with street . The word comes from the Latin 'strata' and it means a public way that is paved with slabs of stone ( strata/stratum ). (Latin strata via = paved way) So it would mean a public road in a city, town or village, probably with houses or other buildings on either sid…e. Possibly with a pave ment for pedestrians, but not necessarily. 2) A road is a path or way that has a specially prepared surface and is used primarily by vehicles, although pedestrians can also walk on a road. 3) A lane is a narrow, often rural, way. It may be just a path, perhaps even a rough 'unmade' way between fields, or trees, beaten flat by frequent public usage. Or it can be a narrow street or a narrow road. These are the Old English meanings of lane, street and road, and, in many cases, these words are still used in this way today to describe and demarcate between different types of public ways. However, the distinction between them has become somewhat blurred with the passage of time and the growth of towns and cities. For example, some public ways which were formerly 'roads', perhaps joining one village to the next, are now in the middle of a large populated area and may also have paved pavements, and houses, on both sides. But if this public way was called a road in the past, it would probably still be called a road now. e.g. the old City Road (i.e. 'the road to the city'), even though it might now be in the middle of the city, might still be called City Road! With the growth of inhabited areas, town planners often give names to public ways that are not directly connected to their physical function or nature. "Maple Way" may not have any maple trees in it, and may even be cul-de-sac, and not a 'way' to anywhere! In a similar fashion, a street map today might show a variety of Streets, Roads, Lanes, Avenues, Ways, Drives, etc. but these may simply be the official names of these public ways, without meaning to specifically indicate the width, usage or type of road surface of each 'street/road/lane/path' on the map! . REVIEW POINTS . Compare the high street with the main road, where would you be more likely to find shops and banks, and which is more likely to be the principle route through or to a town? . What would be the difference between a street map and a road map? . SUMMARY So we have official names ...Road, ... Street, .... Lane, and we have the common nouns 'road', 'street' and 'lane'. In broad terms, . lanes are the narrowest, and rural . streets generally have pavements and buildings on both sides, and are in villages, towns and cities . roads are the main highways between population centers. . But sometimes, in everyday conversation, the terms street/road are used interchangeably, to mean the same thing, particularly in populated areas. Note: The word road is also often used to distinguish 'the public way used by vehicles' from the way/path used by pedestrians. "Don't walk in the road!" ( Full Answer )
In a one way 3 lane road who has the right of way - a vehicle entering from the rightmost lane to center lane or the vehicle from the leftmost lane entering the center lane?
I would say the vehicle on the right is at fault, because the vehicle on the left is a "passing vehicle." You must always yield the right-of-way and keep to the right of a passing vehicle on the left.. Or whoever has the bigger vehicle
SAFELY merge into and through the slower lanes of traffic. If you cannot do so before your exit is reached, continue on the next exit by driving in Lane 4 - exit there and then return one exit to your original destination.
yield to vehicles traveling on a divided street or roadway or vehicles traveling on a roadway with three or more lanes
The one which will be the outside lane. If it's a left turn, they'll be in the right lane. If it's a right turn, they'll be in the left turn lane.
On narrow roads, a turn out lane creates an area where slowertraffic can pull over to allow other vehicles to pass. They areused where the nature of the road precludes safely passing in theopposite lane. You should use the turnout lane when other trafficwants to pass you.
Generally the lane closest to the center divider. Lanes are numbered from the left most lane on the side of the road you are on. Such as number one lane, the left most lane , is generally considered the fast lane.
It depends on how the lane is marked. In some areas it is used strictly to allow for making left turns. In other states it can be used for passing. Pay attention to the lane markings and check the specific traffic laws for your particular state.
Which are extra lanes at a highway exit located on the right hand side of the roadway.
Who is at fault The car turning onto the road in the right lane or the car in the left lane that merged into the right lane?
IF the car travelling in the outside lane crossed into the right lane striking the vehicle entering the roadway (AND IT CAN BE PROVED) then the car that changed lanes would be at fault. If no ticket was given, turn the whole matter over to your insurance company and let them handle it.
HOV stands for High Occupancy Vehicles. There is a lane set aside on major highways within cities or that lead into cities that is for vehicles that have two or more people in the vehicle. This is designed to coerce people to carpool by giving them a lane that they won't get tied up in traffic in du…ring rush hour. It helps keep the number of cars down on the road by people sharing the ride to work. ( Full Answer )
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 o…pposite). ( Full Answer )
The portion of the roadway adjoining the main traveled way consisting of tapers, widened areas
Yes, at intervals there are crossover points either in the barrier walls (if so equipped) or in the lines that sperate the traffic flows.
Because most roads are designed with a "crown" - they're higher in the center than at the edges - it means that rainwater flows off the pavement in both directions, necessitating ditches on both sides.
you know a road ,it has sometimes has some white lines that split the lanes equily
you wait until the center line goes from solid to dashed and then, when there is no traffic on the other side, pass. but dont just stay over there.
a lane is normally very small and a road is normally very long and mre likely to have many shops/building

When 2 cars meet at an intersection of a 2 lane road with a 4 lane road which one must yield the right away?
If it's a four way stop, it's treated like any other four-way stop. First vehicle to the intersection has right of way, if two or more vehicles stop simultaneously, the vehicle to the right gets right of way. In most intersections, this wouldn't be an issue - such an intersection would either have t…he four lane road the designated priority road, which does not stop and to which traffic on the two lane road yields unconditionally, or it would be a controlled intersection.

The stripe is 2in thick on my street, if thats what your asking. But there can be a couple feet of room in bewteen cars
Some have odd, some have even but most have odd and even along different stretches!
left... ...but do not impede existing traffic, andmove to the right lane as soon as it is safe to do so.
It is never legal to block a road. If you must do so forconstruction or other reasons, it will require a permit from thejurisdiction.
Having looked at the road with Google Earth - it has two lanes running in each direction..
You stop and wait until you can pass it when the bus is moving. Ifyou pass it while it is stopped and letting kids out or pickingthem up, you are breaking the law.
How do you get over the fear of driving on the 4 lane I am not sacred to drive on 2 lane just nervous about driving on 4 lane?
Try always concentrate on moving with the traffic flow, and you'll be save on any number of lanes. Always try to create an empty space around you, so you can change lanes safely. Never slow down when you change lanes, go with the traffic flow.
You should put your blinker on and make certain the lane you wish to enter is free of any other vehicles for a safe distance.
The lane which remains continuous has the right of way; therefore,if the left lane is merging into the right lane and is ending, thenthe vehicle already occupying the right lane has right of way.
