IV. Positioning
Lane sharing

Unless your vehicle cannot maintain the posted speed limit of the road and you are driving close to right curb or edge of the roadway, you should not share your lane with other vehicles. The best way to avoid lane sharing is to keep your blocking position, especially in situations where other drivers might be tempted to squeeze by you. This is most likely to happen in the following situations:

  • Heavy bumper-to-bumper traffic
  • When you are preparing to turn at an intersection
  • When you are entering an exit lane or leaving the freeway
  • When another driver wants to pass you.
