I just got my license + car and for my birthday, my dad bought me a tank of gas ($3.29 a gallon...). So we are pulling out of the "back" side of his neighborhood and we come to a 2 lane road with a stop sign. No big deal, I have driven on the road hundreds of times. So I make sure no one is coming, pull out into the turning lane and do a quick change onto the actual lane. Well my dad freaked out saying how I am such a bad driver because he thinks I made a mistake. The pit, can answer any question, so pit, was I right, or wrong? Here is a picture of the intersection. Click on it to see it better.

Red is what I did, green is what my dad thought I had to do

it kind of sucks because now my self confidence isn't so high after he bitched at me

nope i remember in driving lessons or whatever the teacher told me to do that if theres too much traffic coming from one way (i think that lane that you turned into is a turn lane only?)
#3
You're not supposed to do it.. since that lane is shared, there could've been someone coming at you from the opposite direction.

If a cop saw you do it, you'd probably get ticketed.

You're not supposed to turn into the lft hand turn lane and wait to get in a real lane, but everyone does it, your dad probably does it too.

Nub.

You were wrong, But.

If it was a two lane road, [meaning, like two lanes going the same way] Then you would have, assuming you were still turning left, gotten into the left lane, and then murged into the right lane, but you aren't supposed to turn into the turn lane and merge.

Your dad shouldn't have freaked, but you were wrong.

yeah blud, illegal, did it in my lesson on wednesday. got the whole (no - no no)

i think it's one of those things you're not meant to do, but everybody does, like using 1st for more than starting, and crossing your hands.

don't get me started on the regulation steering method.

urgh.

Ordinarily, that would be a steal for such a new car with so few miles.

However, you're driving a Buick.

what you did was how the law says you're supposed to drive (in CT at least) and what you're dad wanted you to do was realistic driving. theres a difference between realistic and legal driving

Just be thankful that you didn't do it on your driving test. Who cares if you make a stupid mistake like that, as long as you're only driving with your dad?
#20
what do you save yourself from doing what you did?
i would just follow what your dad said to do, and if you really want to question it. just ask a cop.

This is from a cop in my city because we have a big problem with idiots in our city doing it even though most of the times it is unneeded. Scare the crap out of me sometimes because you don't always know if they see you or not. It is legal to pull out and stop in the turn lane then move into the real lane when it is clear, BUT it is illegal to drive down the turn lane before moving into the real lane.
