Inside or Outside lane? Should we use inside or outside line when turning at the major intersection? That is when we have the two turning lanes available. Well, if you call outside lane the left turning lane then you are right, you should use the left turning (outside lane) whenever possible. The left lane is known as a regular speed lane, and a right lane is a fast lane or the lane used for faster traffic. What do we mean slow and faster traffic?
Inside or Outside lane – Why Keep Left When Everyone Should Respect Speed Limits
We all should be aware that everyone ought to respect the speed limits and be aware of road rules and regulations.

What is the recommended distance from an intersection to change lanes before turning right?
Distance will depend on the density of traffic at any given time. In general, it is recommended to change lanes well in advance in heavy traffic conditions.

If you believe it’s already too late to attempt to change lanes, simply don’t do it, continue straight and make your turn at the next available intersection. The most important thing you need to remember is that “never create any urgency unless necessary”. Drive Responsibly!
