We haven’t written too much in the Driver’s Ed section of late, but this one just happened today, and it’s a simple one.

If you’re in one of two lanes heading toward a stop sign or traffic light, and there’s no one in either lane ahead of you, and you’re going straight or left, pull into the left lane.

Not only is the right lane for turning right, but the magic thing about the right lane is that you can even turn right on a red light.

If you’re going straight, and you pull up and sit in the right lane when you’re going straight, now everyone who wants to turn right needs to wait for the light to change so you can get out of the way.

As always, please think of others when you’re driving. It can only lead to a happier place for all.
