This law is quite simple: if you're on the frontage road (a.k.a. access road, feeder road, service road, or gateway) of a freeway or expressway, then you must yield to traffic exiting or entering the freeway or expressway. This law covers all entrance and exit ramps, even if there are no yield signs. Even if the traffic leaving the freeway merges into a separate lane, you are still technically required to yield. After all, they may want to quickly move over to the right lane to turn. Note, though, that yielding does not necessarily mean stopping.

Artist, I just wanted the footage. It was a new camera at the time.
I knew exactly what was going to happen.

Jin, I must confess, that video is not of me.
you have confirmed the second video is of you. and everything is identical to the first video. its you. if it ever got there, a jury would take both videos, all your forum posts you can't delete... and then convict you on that.

ps - it would either be a jury of cagers or moto riders, but both will confirm the law was broken.

That's crazy. I understand if the lanes merge but if people coming off of the highway have their own lane then normal laws should apply regarding changing lanes.

If people coming off of the freeway need to turn immediately they should have exited sooner.

Gotta keep in mind, when these where written...you didn't have quite the #/degree of strip centers etc lining the freeway or the general volume.

People shouldn't run red lights, jump across multiple lanes of traffic to make a free way entrance/exit, stop on the freeway, or try to drive in reverse to get to an exit etc they passed up either...BUT there are and idiots that's try it daily...

i think the video in question shows the vehicle exiting the freeway onto the feeder... and the feeder lane does END (gets back onto the freeway).

no 4 lane change takes place. no slamming on the brakes to turn right (there isn't a turn there anyways). just a brief touch of the white stripes as he/she attempts to change lanes to the actual feeder lane... then back onto the 'on ramp' lane.

i think what others are saying is that Mr T should have slowed down and given the right of way.

See you on the other side.
I don't get it, if you're gonna break the law, why not just cruise the shoulder?

It would be far less dangerous, far less likely to accidently cream someone elses property, safer, and just as illegal?

Lane splitting to the front when stopped at an intersection is definitely safer than sitting in the back of traffic. Coming from Cali, this isn't such a big deal for me because I'd see it all the time. It makes sense to allow bikes to do this because it's safer and bikes accelerate much faster than cars/trucks do anyways.

Unfortunately, people see this as cutting in front of them and will people off here.

There are rules to lane splitting.
Riding in the shoulder is forbidden and is reserved for emergency vehicles only.

And is actually far more illegal, especially since there is legislation to allow this in Texas.
