I've got a question about how we're supposed to deal with the right-hook scenario.
I encounter this frequently, usually at 11th street and 11th ave (southbound). I'm in the bike lane going straight through the intersection, and a car turns right in front of me and stops to wait for pedestrians in the crosswalk.
I've had a remarkably difficult time searching for the relevant portion of Alberta traffic laws. I found this page comparing the laws in California and Oregon, but which one applies in Alberta? Are cars legally supposed to yield to us, or are we supposed to yield to the cars? I'm going to continue yielding to the large piece of metal that can kill me, but I'd like to know who's technically in the right.
In the situation where the line between bikes and cars is dotted at the intersection, I think it's pretty clear that the cars are allowed to merge in and then turn right (California style). However, when it's solid right up to the intersection such as at 11th and 11th, I'm not as sure.
