"An operator on an access or feeder road ..."

This leads me to believe that the rule applies to all vehicles on the access road.

correct. the intent of the law is to prevent drivers from impeding vehicles that exiting the freeway by the driver having to stop because some yahoos will not let him get over to make his right turn. so law says if you are on the feeder period, then you shall yield to that vehicle exiting the freeway. cars backing up into the freeway causes traffic problems which defeats its purpose. to flow freely . not having the freeway speeds slow because of the exit lane, but I see it happen everyday in houston.

Regardless of the law, the guy still has to switch over lanes in a responsible manner. This guy shot across 3 lanes to get to that side road.

I would think after crossing the first lane, then he's already on the feeder, and is no longer technically "exiting". Now he's sharing the feeder with anyone else on that road.

RIP to the fallen rider

this is a problem on the 225 fwy exiting to Pasadena Rd. a good percent is trying to make the right turn to a street that is right after the exit. the white line doesnt extend that far so drivers coming off the 225 fwy are legally able to change lanes to make the right turn...and when i do get off the ramp with my cage or bike..i always expect that the YIELD signs are useless. i almost run over other cagers when im on my truck or cagers almost running me over when im on the bike.

i only wish the fallen rider would have slow down immidiately and let the a-hole go by...trying to outrun or get the dummass cager attention will not work..again RIP to the fallen rider

Not to sound preachy here, but I feel compelled to comment.

Kudos to you for identifying a hazardous spot. You're paying attention. You get an atta-boy for situational awareness. What's the next step? QUIT USING THAT EXIT. Sorry to go all-caps on ya, but it's important chit.

Risk assessment is the name of the game when riding a bike. Avoiding high-risk zones isn't weak, it's smart. FWIW, 225 as a whole sucks. Broadway to the beltway is to elbows, and Battleground to 146 is the Moron 500 seven days a week. My friend, I live on the SE side, I'm on the gulf frwy and the loop almost daily with my bike, and I haven't rolled it on 225 in over ten years. I'll do it in the F250. On the bike? Not a chance.

That white line is some bullshit. Does anyone here actually trust, even for a moment, that Joe Blow in his F-250 is going to give a flying fizzuck about a white line? , I see Corolla's cutting over with the quickness. What they need is definitely some of those poles like I think Madseason said? Similar to the kind they have on the Beltway near the toll booths, OR... better yet some median curb.

R.I.P.
