That lane has a right turn sign and is merging with the left lane after the Kennedy-Ellesmere intersection. There are no signs posted that we can not drive straight on this lane.
She merged into left lane after the intersection and was stopped by the Officer. He gave her the ticket that says:
Highway Traffic Act 182(2)
I am wondering if someone is coming out from a plaza can only turn into immediate lane and can not skip one lane while traffic is running. Also, if someone can not find space to merge before intersection then stopping and waiting before the intersection means you are impeding the traffic and will hear a lot of honking behind you.
Can anyone tell me what our options are.
I have attached the picture for better clarity.

One possibility in Toronto is to see if you can plead to a similar bylaw. The fine would be greatly reduced, and if it doesn't carry any demerit points it won't effect your insurance rates.

The arrows on the roadway are informative, the sign itself unfortunately is obligatory.halaku wrote:Can a get a copy of the law and from where. I need to see if it is an obligatory sign or informative.
People doing what you did are inconsiderate.
We follow the lane, wait for our turn, then you people want to but in.
I applaud the cop who took the time to ticket your wife.
Courtesy is needed to prevent ROAD-RAGE.
