Letter: Regarding Who has right of way?

John Campbell writes:
I'm not an authority or in law enforcement, so this comment is my understanding of KY law.

Usually (not always), a turning lane is a lane from which traffic is merging into the already established flow of traffic. Thus, from the turning lane, one would yield to oncoming traffic.

When in doubt, the larger vehicle with the most velocity ALWAYS wins! It is against the law even if the law isn't around (tree falls in the woods-does it make a sound if nobody is there to hear it?) and the man with the badge and gun is always right when he has you blue lighted. Don't argue with the man.
