What is a traffic lane?
A traffic lane is a marked or imag
inary division of the surface of a
street or highway wide enough for
a single line of vehicles. The law
governing use of traffic lanes applies
to, the unmarked, or imaginary lanes,
just as it does to marked lanes.
Docs the law compel me to drive in
the right hand lane?
The law states that you must nor
mally use the right hand lane, re
maining as close to the edge or curb
as possible, except where the road is
under construction or when you are
passing another vehicle. You must
drive within a single lane where
lanes are marked, and must not leave
the lane until you are sure you can
do so safely. On a three-lane high
way, you should use the center lane
for passing only.
Our sincere thanks and apprecia
tion are extended to the many kind
friends who remembered us with
flowers and words of cheer at the
time of Mr. Jones' illness.
Mr. and Mrs. Jeff Jones.
