        Making a right hand turn like that doesn’t bother me because I have a CDL-A and was taught how to properly make a very tight right hand turn. We were taught that you never, ever go into the left lane to make a right hand turn and if you have to you for the other traffic the back up to let you complete that turn in a lot of these people do not stop at that big wide white line which is there to give the driver of a semi truck enough room to complete the turn. You are correct you need to keep an eye on your surroundings and making sure that there are no overhangs of the building such as an awning because if you cut that too tight, you’ll rip that awning right off. And there was another individual that made a comment and that yes, there have been drivers ticketed for moving over in the left lane to make a right hand turn.

    I just watched your video on maneuvering right hand turns. I have a CDL and they teach you NOT to go in the left lane to make a right turn. The book says to go into on coming traffic to complete your turn. I know it doesn’t make sense but I know drivers have been issued tickets because they went into the left lane. I did notice your driver didn’t go far into the left lane but not everyone will see that. Thanks
