I am stuck in traffic all the time during rush hours and see many drivers do this.
Other than making everyone else hate you, are there any issues with this from a legal point of view?
142(1)The driver or operator of a vehicle upon a highway before turning to the left or right at any intersection or into a private road or driveway or from one lane for traffic to another lane for traffic or to leave the roadway shall first see that the movement can be made in safety, and if the operation of any other vehicle may be affected by the movement shall give a signal plainly visible to the driver or operator of the other vehicle of the intention to make the movement. R.S.O. 1990, c. H.8, s. 142
It slows down traffic for all other vehicles and by not being illegal(perhaps, im not a lawyer) it encourages this bad behavior to other drivers as the offenders get through traffic faster.
In regards to legality, would it not be illegal to pass on the right?
Personally, I would love to see the government act on this particular issue. Too busy with buck-a-beer I guess
Where is the "like" button!
