  1. Before I ask, I disclose that I'm on my L's.

    So, at a traffic light intersection, is it legal to ride to the start of the queue ie up to the white line, on the left hand side of the left hand lane (usually a bicycle lane) and then stop next to the car at the head of the queue, on his left hand side, waiting for the lights to turn green?

  2. its called filtering, search it, your answer is yes and no

    plus what state?
  3. Yes and no, no and yes. And to be clear - no, I mean yes.
  4. State is SA.

    I have researched a little on filtering, and my understanding was that it's OK to do it between lanes, however my question relates to the lane closest to the footpath? I suppose it would be.
  5. There are a billion threads on this and you'll have to do the hard yards and SEARCH as it is a topic that comes up all the time.
