The way I read/see this in relation to your incident:

1. The driver of a vehicle may overtake and pass upon the right of another vehicle only under the following conditions:

(a) When the driver of the vehicle overtaken is making or signaling to make a left turn.

In your case, the vehicles you passed where not signaling or making a left turn.
Condition not passed.

(b) Upon a highway with unobstructed pavement which is not occupied by parked vehicles and which is of sufficient width for two or more lines of moving vehicles in each direction.

There was no unobstructed pavement in your case, since the right lane had 4 parked cars.
Condition not passed.

(c) Upon a highway with unobstructed pavement which is not marked as a traffic lane and which is not occupied by parked vehicles, if the vehicle that is overtaking and passing another vehicle:

Since you did not satisfy conditions A and B, you don't pass the conditions below either. But if you did...

(1) Does not travel more than 200 feet in the section of pavement not marked as a traffic lane; or

You traveled on a traffic lane, not on a section of pavement not marked as a traffic lane.
Condition not passed.

(2) While being driven in the section of pavement not marked as a traffic lane, does not travel through an intersection or past any private way that is used to enter or exit the highway.

Condition 1 above not passed, so this on is not passed either.
But, even if you did, 4 car lengths probably means you rolled past an entrance to a gas station or some other similar corner establishment or house, etc...

(d) Upon any highway on which traffic is restricted to one direction of movement, where the highway is free from obstructions and of sufficient width for two or more lines of moving vehicles.

This might, or not, apply to you, and that particular intersection.
But, I don't think it changes the scenario much.

2. The driver of a vehicle may overtake and pass another vehicle upon the right only under conditions permitting such movement in safety.

This is questionable due to the close proximity and line sharing with the other vehicles (common theme as to why it is not allowed...unsafe.).

3. The driver of a vehicle shall not overtake and pass another vehicle upon the right when such movement requires driving off the paved portion of the highway.

This one might apply, since you did not (im guessing) ride on the gutter.

I would be shocked if any of you haven't done the samething.

Think about it, when you are turning right onto a street and the vehicle or vehicles in the right lane is qued up in a single line with no turn signals at a red light. And there is five or six feet of pavement next to them on the right, you're not going to roll on by and take a right hander?

You will patiently wait behind the other vehicle to turn right? Cars do it behind me all the time since a motorcycle will allow enough space to do so as long as I position myself toward the center or left portion of the lane. Just so happened that the situation were reversed, and I had the room to get by and I took the turn.

There were no driveways or entry or exit points. Just a solid curb going along the length of the roadway.

Anways, she lit me up because she didn't like the way I pointed to her front end being so close to my bike, then putting my arms up in the air, indicating the WTF motion shaking my head. She was using the right hand turn as a way to reflect her mistake by stopping so close to me.

You must have missed my post =]..


Same thing has happened to me. Except when I questioned the cop, he said it was a misuse of lane sharing/lane splitting...

Well that's the gray area, was it misuse of the lane or was it not part of the lane. There is no marking for the right side of the lane, the only border is the curb, so I guess the right lane is about 5 or 6 feet wider than the middle and left lane.

If a car were to travel down the very rightside of that roadway, where the tire might be a foot away from the curb, leaving about 8 feet of space on the left side, a cop would probably pull over that driver for not staying within their lane.

Just kind of silly for this NRS to exhist, as I believe this is exactly what this law was intended for. Allowing motorist to bypass another vehicle on the right under certain situations. This scenario happens all the time, just about at every intersection.

But a cop can disect anything legal and turn it against you in their favor so they can write you a ticket. The courts will always favor the cops since they are the professionals. So yes, I could have received a ticket, but I did not get one.

I'm not even sure if this was even metro. It could have been a gaming official, DEA, FBI, School cop, who knows. No uniform, just a badge hanging over their neck driving a white car. I would have asked for a marked unit to swing on by if I were to have been asked to pull out my license.

And whats even weirder. Is i wasn't pulled over by a metro cop either! I was pulled over by a "special gang unit".

If anyone remembers this escapade I had, this was when the officer took my license and reg and told me to come pick it up the next day at the sub station because he was on his way to another call.

Cops can, and will do, whatever the fuck they want to pull you over. Probable cause sure, ill make one up. I pulled you over cause you didnt use your blinker, "but i did officer" well i didnt see it,. When we all know you really did =].... etc etc etc etc etc...

My fav line -

"Yeah I cant read your license plate".
me - Odd. Everyone at the sub station could!

I agree with Family Man, I will never present my license until a marked unit shows up and in uniform. No disrespect for the other cop, but I've seen in the news that this is what you should do in the event you get pulled over by an unmarked vehicle because there have been so many incidents with imposters.

Arson, I would have requested a marked unit to show up. I don't think they could have legally taken your license away unless you were arrested. By law, you must have ID at all times, especially if you're still riding or driving.
