In Washington State... You will notice that all freeway on ramps have a posted speed limit lower than the freeeway speed limit. When merging onto a freeway, the merger does not have the right of way and must yield to faster oncomming traffic. Now, it's different if you are driving on a road with two lanes where both lanes flow traffic in the same direction. If a two lane highway merges down to one lane the person in the merging lane has the right of way if their vehicle is ahead of you where the two lanes form one. This reply is confusing. The merger (or accelleration) lane is intended for vehicles to get up to the speed of traffic. Although you do have to yield when you enter traffic, you should be able to slip into traffic if you are up to speed. One of the most common reasons people have to stop driving on the freeway is because they can't comfortably speed up to the posted speed limit and still find a gap to enter traffic. The same is true with exiting the freeway. Enter the exit ramp at highway speeds and slow down after you are on the deceleration ramp. Freeways are intended to run smoothly and that is why you should use the ramps to gain speed and to slow down.
No. You'll notice that the bike lane is marked with a solid white line. Anywhere you see a solid white line (such as lanes close to stoplights or bike lanes) you are not supposed to use those as merge lanes.
Where two or more lanes of traffic flow in the same direction, you may pass... otherwise, you cannot pass.
prepare to leave the lane safely Explanation: Lane signals are used: -When the direction of the flow of traffic changes during the day. -To show that a toll booth is open or closed. -To show which lanes are opened or closed. You must never drive in a lane under a red X. A yellow X means that your lane signal is going to change to red. Prepare to leave the lane safely. You may drive in lanes beneath the green arrow, but you must also obey all other signs and signals.
Traffic lanes are lanes on the road that are divided into various speed limits, so you can choose your speed and stay on that lane.
China, with 50 lanes.
Middle lane at +/- 5 mph of posted speed limit
When you drive slow!! And if you do, you really need to be in the right lane. Because if you drive slow in the left lane, you'll really (really) make people mad!
The current largest bowling center in the United States is Freeway Lanes in Wickliffe, OH with 96 lanes.
it is called a 'median"
In the left lane.
To indicate that traffic in that lane is flowing in the same direction as you are traveling.
Yes, unless there are multiple designated U-Turn lanes for an intersection or freeway. (of course if they are not permitted, you don't period.) :D
