Keep left is law but no one is

I THINK it’s time for me to surrender and do what all other drivers who are in breach of the road laws do.

Dual carriageways, highways, dual roads, call them what you like, but they are roads such as Melrose Drive, Beechworth Road and the southern end of Lawrence Street.

They are all dual carriageways and the road law states that one must drive in the left-hand lane unless you are overtaking or turning right.

When turning right means that about 300 metres from the turn you change lanes, not one or two kilometres before the turn.

I have seen driving school vehicles, highway patrol vehicles, taxis, all breaking the law, and driving schools with learner drivers are the worst as the licensed drivers are teaching bad habits, and the highway patrol is condoning it.

It has reached the stage that VicRoads may as well close the left- hand lane and do like the Wodonga City Council is going to do with High Street and reduce all dual carriageways to a single lane.
