Ok, this one is really, really simple people. When the line on the road inbetween the lanes goes from dashed (denoting that it is acceptible to change lanes) to solid, DO NOT change lanes! It’s a solid line for a reason!
There is an intersection I come through every morning on my way to work. Travelling West on FM 1960, the road splits – 3 lanes get to go into and underpass, below 249. The other 3 lanes stay at ground level and can turn on to 249 (North or South) or they can go straight like I do and turn in to our office building. This is all good & well – until idiots decide to ignore the solid white line. There thought process must go something like, “Oops, I’m in the center lane and I need to turn left up ahead. I’ll just go ahead and get over now. Gee, why is that line solid? Oh, whatever. I’m going anyways.” Even more amusing is mornings like today where two people do it at the same time, not using their turn signals of course, and almost hit each other! Yes, I just sit back and laugh at them.
Rules of the road. They are simple. You learned them when you were 16, how about using them now? And don’t cross the solid white line!
