Should I Share that Lane?

This page focuses on lane width, but a lot of factors play into whether or not you should share a lane. They include, but are not limited to:

  • pavement conditions
  • frequency of intersections and driveways
  • sight line obstructions
  • speed of traffic (faster traffic requires more passing clearance, thus greater width to safely share)
  • turn lane (always control turn lanes and roundabouts)
