How Do You Properly Use A Double Turn Lane?

Have you ever had to make a turn and there was an inside and an outside turn lane?  We all have.  Have you noticed the dotted white lines from those turn lanes into the intersection?  Those lines are a guide to inform the drivers in the inside and outside turn lanes as to which lanes they may turn in to.

Did you know if you are turning from the outside turn lane into a four lane road you may take either of the outside two lanes when you make your turn.  If you are turning from the inside lane into a four lane road you make take either of the two inside lanes.  However, you are not supposed to use the inside turn lane to take the outside lanes and vice versa.  Not only is this considered an improper turn, which could garnish you a ticket, but it could also cause a traffic accident.

The more we know about driving safety, the better drivers we become!
