You’re incorrect, and if you can’t understand a simple explanation, I’m not going to continue to waste time other than to say you’re incorrect, the yield sign is obviously there because that lane is meant to yield, and if you want to test it, by all means, next time you’re there fail to yield and see what happens when you repeat everything you’ve said here to the police officer and the insurance companies involved in your accident.
The only thing you continue repeating is "but but but I'm an expert!". Of course there's a yield sign there, the whole point is there's literally nothing to yield to. I've asked very straightforward questions to clarify the matter, and you continue to just cite your so-called expertise instead of actually answering the questions. If you work for the NCDOT and are considered an expert on traffic law, you should have any number of references and regulations at your fingertips to support what you're saying and help me understand.
At what point do you go from turning off the highway to traveling on Carowinds Blvd? And where does the turn lane become an additional lane of Carowinds Blvd? Any traffic expert should easily be able to answer those questions.
In fact, the second right turn lane has markings to indicate a yield point when merging with oncoming traffic. The far right lane has no such markings. And once on Carowinds Blvd, there is a solid white line to the left of the right-most lane, marking that cars on Carowinds Blvd are NOT to move into the far right lane at that point. After a bit, it changes to a broken white line, indicating you may merge right when it's safe to do so. The markings make it perfectly clear that at no time does a car on Carowinds Blvd have the right of way in that right-most lane.
