Why is there no car in the jagged lane, but there is a long queue in the adjacent lane?

At the intersection, each vehicle must choose the right lane in advance. If you want to go straight, take the straight lane. If you want to turn, take the turning lane. When you reach the solid line area, you are not allowed to change lanes. Even if you make a mistake, you must continue walking.

At the intersection, each vehicle must choose the right lane in advance. If you want to go straight, take the straight lane. If you want to turn, take the turning lane. When you reach the solid line area, you are not allowed to change lanes. Even if you make a mistake, you must continue walking. Many people choose lanes based on the signs on the ground, such as the straight arrow or the turning arrow, which represent the straight lane and the turning lane, respectively. There is a type of lane where there are no straight or turning arrows, and there are no signs inside the lane. Instead, many short lines are drawn on the solid line of the lane, giving it a jagged appearance overall. Many people are hesitant to walk on this type of lane for the first time, not knowing whether it is a straight or a turning lane. As a result, at some intersections, there are no cars on this lane, but there are long queues in the adjacent lane. Today, let's talk about how to take this lane? Especially novice drivers should take a good look.

       jagged lane (1)

A zigzag lane is a variable lane that can sometimes be a through lane or a turning lane, and it changes in real-time based on road traffic conditions. For example, during this time period, if there are a lot of through traffic and very few left turn vehicles, this lane will become a through traffic lane, adding an extra lane for through traffic can increase traffic efficiency. At another time period, when there are fewer straight cars and more left turning cars, this lane will become a turning lane again. So whether it's going straight or turning is not fixed. When walking, you really need to see clearly. If you're going straight but turning here, it's a violation.

       How do you know if it's in a straight or turning lane now? Just look at the signs on the display screen. There will be a large display screen or lane sign directly above the road at a distance from the intersection, which will clearly indicate whether the lane is going straight or turning. Displaying a through sign is the through lane, and displaying a turn sign is the turn lane. In some places, there may be a display screen on the roadside. In short, when approaching this intersection, you should look up at the road signs hanging high and then choose the lane, not just look at the ground.

       So the jagged lane is not complicated. Although there are no straight or turn signs on the ground, they are drawn on the road signs above. Just take a look at the signs and you won't go wrong. Someone also asked, "If you are going straight at the intersection, taking this road but not passing it, and it turns left at the red light, how should you go?"? Still follow the instructions you saw at the time. If you see it as a straight lane and walk on this road, you won't be able to see any changes in the signs behind you when you reach the solid line area. You don't know if it has turned into a turning lane, so you can only follow it as a straight lane without being penalized or fined. The changes in lanes also have timing, and they will be changed according to the changes in traffic lights, without affecting the traffic of vehicles turning behind. The lane change will definitely turn into a turning lane before the straight traffic lights come on. This way, when the straight traffic lights come on, all straight vehicles can pass through, and the remaining turning vehicles are waiting.
