RV Lane Changing

From state to state, or even city to city, roads are different. Whether it’s the amount of lanes or the way the stoplight hangs, there are differences to be found when RVing. The emotion elicited from these changes can range from pleasing to frustrating. To help you stay vigilant, we’ve listed a few examples of how lanes can alter your driving experience.

Exits

One mode of travel that can’t be avoided while driving in your Oklahoma RV is the highway. Not only is it the easiest way to get around having to stop at a light, it’s the quickest way to get to your destination. As most drivers know, exiting off the highway usually takes place on the right. What drivers usually aren’t looking for are the left exits. Most areas have left exits as a rarity but they definitely do exist. It is most common to overlook at night because highway signs can be few and far between. Some don’t provide travelers enough warning to get over in time. To avoid accidently missing an exit, drive in a middle lane. Being between will offer you more time when coming across one of these on the left.

Alternating

Perhaps more frustrating than left exits are alternating lanes. These lanes usually take place on regular roads in the city and can cause major headaches, depending on the time of day. The set up is usually for heavy traffic periods. The signs are up high over the roads, sometimes not until you are in the intersection. During these busy times, the middle lane is converted to do something different such as act as a turning lane or be extra flow for a specific direction. This happens when there is not enough space, or money, to expand the roads.
