Every day on my way to school there is a long street with a bike lane and two car lanes on each side. But when the street is jammed I have cars going really fast behind me and honking because I'm not going 45 miles an hour like their car is. Can they really do this? I mean it's the BIKE lane. It's one thing to be pulling out of a parking spot and crossing the bike lane but to be driving on it in general shouldn't be right. I live in Los Angeles, CA.
No. In California, a car can only drive in a bike lane 200 feet before making a turn from that side of the road or when entering or exiting the road.
