‘Fake’ Right Lane on Canada Way & 10th Avenue

This ‘Phantom Lane’ has been bothering me

Ok the thing is, maybe it’s just me but there’s a FAKE LANE on Canada Way at 10th and I just have to tell someone about it since it’s not good to keep things inside. I’ve seen a lot of ‘almost accidents’ here, at ‘the Triangle.’

It seems like drivers thinking about turning right on a red light, beside the petrol station here, seem to think there is a magical ‘right lane’ for them to turn into. That is probably because from their perspective, it kind of looks like there is. In fact, there is a very mysterious and mischievous triangular space acting like a right lane. But don’t be fooled.. This is just a FAKE LANE. Don’t do it!

Fake Lane

I don’t know what you want to call it. A fake lane. Phantom lane. Or simply an optical illusion. But please use caution here as it seems to be a small problem at times. Drive safely!!
