In my neck of the woods there is a dashed line that turns solid at the
beginning of those lanes (right or left). You're supposed to be in
the lane prior to the start of the solid line as crossing a solid line
is a ticketable offence. What ends up happening to me a lot is I get
stuck in those lanes when I wanted to go straight as there is usually
little to no warning that it is going to become a turn-only lane.
