Police Car in My Lane

Couldn’t resist posting this. I had a Maryland State Trooper pull me over for the same thing (crossing center line) while driving a tractor drawn aerial-fire/ladder truck. I had a new tiller man following and was trying to cut him some slack. It was like 3-O’clock in the morning and not a soul in sight except for the Trooper. Funny now wasn’t then.

That's the little known D.A.I.S.N.A.I.D rule. Rarely used outside of N.Y., Conn, Mass and Cali.

Actually, check any CDL manual and you'll see that is the CORRECT way to make a right-hand turn.  Swinging wide BEFORE the turn opens the door for someone to squeeze between your trailer and the curb/ditch and get crunched as your trailer off-tracks. Instead, you're supposed to keep your lane into the turn, and swing wide with the tractor upon exit in order to keep that trailer hugging the inside edge of the road.  If you must cross a center line while making your turn, you're supposed to do so on the road you are turning onto.  Of course, it's best to wait until there ISN'T oncoming traffic to do so...

When approaching a 4-way stop, the vehicle with the biggest tires has the right of way!
