Right Turns with Bike Lanes Present


Eric asked:  Near where I live there is an old bike lane that is about 15-20 years old. It has solid white lines right up to the intersection where I routinely turn right when I drive my truck there.

FS says I should get far to the right before making a right turn. I pretend there are dashed lines there and do so, that way a cyclist will have to slow down or stop behind me and I have no chance of right hooking him.

My wife says I will get a ticket. I say even if I do, I can prove the lane doesn’t follow AASHTO standards/ Florida Green book standards and I will win.

Who is right? (Well, given that the county judge understands the law).
