When I approach a traffic light to make a left turn, my tendency is to ride around the cars on their right to get to the head of the pack. I do this because I like to get a jump on the traffic in the turn.
Lane splitting on motorcycles is legal in CA, and so I imagine that the same applies to a bicycle. But beyond the legality of it, what do others think of positioning yourself at the head of the line at a traffic light? Or is it better or more acceptable to keep your place in line?
