Driving Video: Highway Yield / Lane Changing Woes

I can’t watch this!


This lane change made me want to close my eyes and I almost did except I’m sure you’re not supposed to do that while driving.


Get the ‘big picture’


I hope that people can “get the big picture” when preparing for a lane change; lane changing can sometimes be not as simple as it seems.


Merging or yielding


And yes the car coming onto the freeway here was at the notorious Capilano Road entrance where it is facing a “yield” sign. So I guess technically speaking the driver is supposed to be watching out for vehicles in both of the lanes including vehicles that might be lane changing, in addition to dealing with a rather difficult place to enter the freeway.


Parked cars can ‘lane change’ also!


Keep in mind too, when you’re about to do a lane change while driving on a road where there are parked cars, one of the drivers might decide, for example,  to pull into the right lane at the same time as you decide to change from the left lane into the right lane; as you both can inconveniently agree that that is a good time to do it. That’s a lot of stuff to keep track of when lane changing but good to keep it in mind.

  1. That’s why I like Quebec. They paint a solid/broken white line with the solid on the left between through lanes at an acceleration lane. That keeps the fast lane in the fast lane (or at least it is supposed to) and not moving right while traffic from the acceleration lane is moving left. I don’t know why it is not being done here in BC.
