Hereís a situation Iím a little puzzled about. Iím riding on the curb lane. I approach an intersection when the light is red. If a car is ahead of me and signalling right, I get to the left side of the lane so I can proceed straight without being cut off by the car or blocking it. If the car ahead of me isnít signalling right, I continue to ride behind it but remaining on the right side of the lane as one normally bikes. Iím biking in a position that no auto is beside me but behind me so when I go straight, I wonít be cut off by any right-turner behind me.
So what if Iím the first at the intersection as I approach the red light? Do remain on the right side but far enough in the centre to block any approaching cars from behind me from proceeding with their right turn? Or should I approach and stop at the left side of the lane to allow right-turners but risk riding with straight through traffic on my right side when I enter the intersection? Or do I stay in the middle and not anybody through? I got honked once when I blocked the curb lane.
