There is an intersection with a RTOL, no bike lanes, narrow lanes only, I am traveling thru.
I line up behind thru cars in rightmost thru lane.
Sometimes I am the last vehicle just about where the RTOL begins.
I find this a concerning postion. I normally watch appraoching vehicles in mirror and note them slowing - if they don't I am prepared to take evasive action. However if there is a fair amount of RTing traffic, drivers may approach very fast and make a last second swerve into the car width opening for the RTOL, narrowly missing my rear tire.
I do not like this position as I can not tell if drivers see me or not. The alternative is to filter foward using RTOL which blocks the heavily used RTOL aside from not following RotR. Another alternative is to stop 1.5 car lengths back from last car in line to block the RTOL opening, also an 'awkward' position.
Any thoughts? I left bias in this case which gives the most clearance, but I still feel less able to manage the situation vs. when there is no RTOL opening and simply lining up with vehicles, where the slowing of approaching vehicles is consistent.
(I ask that debate about alternate facilities not be discussed here)
