Sign of the week: Curb lane of cross street ahead is a reserved lane

Sign of the Week is a weekly feature here on the SenSen Driving School blog that demystifies some common head-scratching signs you’ll see as a driver.

Curb lane reserved
Many drivers—both experienced and new—commonly miss this sign before turning right, and they can end up turning to the closest lane.

But if you do that on a road test, it’s a ground for failure. 

The purpose of this sign is to remind drivers that the next lane is only for certain types of vehicles. In this specific sign, the next lane is only for high occupancy vehicles. As an example, you’ll see this sign when you’re  turning onto Willingdon Avenue.

The trick  is to look further ahead for road signs before turning. Between needing to slow down, shoulder checks, scanning intersection, watching lights, this can easily be missed—so pay attention.
