The leftmost right-turn lane is a combo lane allowing drivers to go straight or turn right. So there are actually three lanes going through the intersection. Drivers are allowed to right on the red.

On the opposite end of the intersection, the road narrows to 3 lanes. The "bike lane" disappears. So no matter what, I'm taking the rightmost lanes as I cross the intersection.

If I am going through this intersection (ie, neither turning right or left):

1) What is my safest position to be in if the light is green as I approach the intersection?

2) What is my safest position to be in if the light is red and I have to wait for it to turn green?

BTW, the location of this intersection is in Costa Mesa, CA - corner of Sunflower and Bristol. I am traveling eastbound on Sunflower (crossing Bristol).

Thanks,

Darren
