I'm a Law Abiding Citizen

I'm a Law Abiding Citizen and it kicks me in the ass every morning.
I have to make a right hand turn off of a very busy county road. Correct me if I'm wrong but I thought you can not cross over the solid white line to make the right turn.
SO........ people begin getting in the shoulder about 2 blocks before the turn. Mind you, they have crosssed the solid line and wait in line to turn right. I am up in the correct area to make the turn but can't and have to STOP, wait to merge into the lane to make the turn because of all the people illegally in the shoulder area. Now people are honking their horns behind me because I'm stopping traffic on the main road.
Do I break the law and get on the shoulder to keep the flow of traffic going ??
I'm not one too...... If your friend jumped off a bridge would you?
"Keep up with the Jones"?
Damn Cliques!!!
Happy Traffic Tuesday!

Get a bucket of mud and safely throw it out the window at them next time.

When it comes to traffic I think I would have to jump off the bridge with my friend. After many years of driving in the S.F. Bay Area I learned to follow suit when it comes to driving or never getting anywhere. Good luck!

WHAT? You obey traffic laws? That is just plain foolish!

Get yourself a broomstick, duct tape a key to the end. When people don't let you in....stretch the stick out and let that key do some 'touch up' work on their paint job.

Looks like they are mistaking a shoulder for a right turn lane, correct?

It's clear to me. You need a gun. Probably a very big one.
