I sometimes see people driving in the shoulder, and thought I would blog about it today. So driving in the shoulder also known as the emergency stopping lane is not allowed. You always want to drive between the painted traffic lines and not over them on the highway or freeway, even when you are entering and exiting. Can you think of reasons why we shouldn’t drive in the shoulder? Email me your reasons.
Here are some:
- Illegal and you could get a ticket;
- There could be pedestrians walking, joggers running, or cyclists riding in the shoulder;
- There could be broken down vehicles in the shoulder;
- There could be vehicle debris (old parts) in the shoulder that could damage your vehicle.
