I really think that the fed's need to get involved and mandate that all bike lanes end 100 feet (at least) before an intersection without a right turn only lane.
The government would never allow a straight thru lane to be built on the right of a possible right turning lane and yet that has become common practice in the United States.
Many cyclists are killed like this. See the latest one from Portland for more information.
The correct way to handle this would be to leave the bike lane, signal and merge with traffic before the intersection and just take your place in line. Many people are going to feel uneasy about doing this because they feel as though they have to stay in the bike lane. Motorists sometimes feel the need to remind you that there is a bike lane over there as well.
In my city we are going to end all the new bike lanes before the intersection (supposedly) and either install a sign telling them to merge or just leave it up to them.....some will merge and some will still filter (not knowing any better) but at least stupidity has not been mandated by the government in that situation.
Why couldnt a cyclists family who is killed in this way sue the city? They always seem to sue the poor drivers who could not have possibly seen the cyclists passing them on the right when the light turned green.
What say you?
