5. When making a right turn across a bike lane…

  1. Pass the cyclist on the left and turn across them
  2. Move behind the cyclist and pass on their right
  3. Remain behind the cyclist and yield right-of-way
  4. Honk. It is illegal for them to be in the roadway

Scroll down for the answers:

1. A
When both cars have arrived simultaneously, right-of-way goes to the car on the right. If you have no car to your right, and there is a car to your left — go.
2. D
Lane splitting is legal in California, so long as certain speed requirements are followed. Motorists must always remain aware of motorcycles on any road, not only freeways.
3. C
Designated equestrian crossings are the only places a horse may cross. If the horse crossing has won a Stakes Race, you need to stop driving on race tracks and stay on the road.
4. A
As long as the oncoming traffic is clear and the driver is beginning the U-turn from the left lane, all is well. Obviously this does not apply when a “No U-Turn” sign has been posted.
5. B
Yes, cyclists are allowed to ride in the right turn lane, and yes… they can go straight from the lane. The right turn lane is often an extension of the bike lane, and they ride in the center or left of it to prevent you from turning across their path. It’s basic safety.
