I suppose it depends on the location, but in most places a motor vehicle is only allowed to travel in the roadway. The shoulder is not the roadway. I almost saw an accident caused by someone passing left turning vehicles on the shoulder. The people turning left cleared the intersection just as the guy made it past them on their right. So someone that had been waiting for them so he could go straight and the guy on the shoulder ended up in the same place at the same time. I saw the situation developing and thought for sure they were going to hit, but shoulder guy yielded in time. Around here, they are starting to stripe the shoulders, and I've also seen No! painted on the shoulders as well.
