Collecting support for a sign on Sooke Rd at Manzer Rd — 16 Comments

  1. If she wants support, she needs to hit up the rich folks that are going to the Fine Arts Show at the Seaparc Complex. Judging by the cars and the clothes, it would be chump change for any one of them. Good luck to her.

  2. These signs mean nothing. There has been on before the turn at woodlands and Sooke and it has yet to stop any one. Maybe more enforcement of traffic laws would actually make people stop.

    • It is illegal to pass when there is a double yellow, but not to cross it to do a left turn onto a street, driveway or business , but turn to left driver must use extreme caution. Otherwise nobody living on Sooke rd, where double yellow runs could turn left out or in their driveways.

      • “156 If the driver of a vehicle is causing the vehicle to enter or leave a highway and the driver has ascertained that he or she might do so with safety and does so without unreasonably affecting the travel of another vehicle, the provisions of sections 151 and 155 are suspended with respect to the driver while the vehicle is entering or leaving the highway.”

        • yes, the ‘unreasonably affecting travel’ means that you can’t stop in the middle of a highway and back up several vehicles behind you to make the turn. If the oncoming traffic stops you from making a clean turn you must pull off to the right and wait for a safe time to turn left.

    • So from what I read, you can ‘safely’ pass on the right if there is a lane to do so and there is a vehicle stopped with his left turn signal on..

      • Yes this is true but something that is missed is that the passing vehicle is to signal to the right so the cars behind are aware of the intensions. Also the term “safely” is important because ICBC still recognizes doubt and will charge the passing vehicle with a higher percentage of fault for the claim if there is an accident.
