I can't seem to find this topic explained to my satisfaction in previous threads. If it's been beaten to death, or is so painfully obvious, forgive me.
So, let's say I'm riding along and I want to make a left turn. And up ahead there's a left hand turn lane. And, in the left turn lane there's a line of maybe 5-7 cars. Would VC dictate I pull up behind the 7th car, take the whole lane, and wait my turn?
To me, there are situations where I feel comfortable moving (lane splitting?) to the front of the turn lane where I'm going to be passing stopped cars on my left and (sometimes) right.
Thanks for all the help!
