It’s one thing to know how to step on the accelerator pedal, but it’s another to know how to effectively merge into another lane… This driver of the big white truck that zooms by in the right lane leaves themselves no room to merge when they reach the parked car ahead. Merging works best when matching the speed of other traffic, not too fast, not too slow (or worst, when stopped).
Cyclists are subject to the same rules of the road as defined in the Motor Vehicle Act. That means not crossing an intersection against a red light, as this cyclist did. Luckily I was not going faster, or else I might have collided with them.
If you need to make a right turn immediately after a left turn with multiple turning lanes, you should plan ahead and queue from the right-most left-turn lane.
The Sea to Sky highway (BC Highway 99) from Vancouver to Whistler is one of my favourite drives. It is both picturesque, and fun to drive with all the twists and turns. On this beautiful autumn day, I was heading to Whistler to check out the Turkey Sale, and was able to finally capture the drive in great weather conditions.
