OK, the red dotted line is how I'm forced to ride. The yellow dotted line is the direction of auto traffic. As you can see, if I stay to the right, I'm risking a right hook from a car with a green light (and I'm legally in the wrong lane).
If I move into the only lane designated for through traffic, I have to cross two lanes of moving traffic, some if it fast because drivers speed up to make the light. Then I have to hope that I drivers in the middle lane actually heed the arrows and turn right instead of going straight (which is very tempting, as I've driven through this intersection many times as well).
It seems that the middle lane should be for cars that either want to go straight or turn right.
Why did they do this? Did someone screw up painting the lines?
Who do you call to report crap like this?
