We know that the MVA says that when making a turn you must turn into the first lane. If the first lane is backed up to the intersection, may the turning vehicles enter the next lane as it's the first available lane? Google Maps
Here's an example - the camera is looking South on Blanshard. Lanes are numbered left to right.
Lane #1 (where the yellow truck is pictured) is backed up to the intersection due to cars waiting to turn left at the next intersection. Lane #2 and #3 are both clear.
Can cars travelling West on Pandora turning South onto Blanshard make that turn into lane 2 or 3 when #1 is backed up to the intersection?
I'm asking as I was the last car in lane #1 and watched several cars turn left from Pandora into lanes 2 and 3 of Blanshard, followed by a police officer in a marked car who didn't seem too upset at the turning cars.
