Hi, and Welcome to JustAnswer. Thank you for your question.
My name isXXXXX am a licensed, practicing Attorney and would be glad to help
Actually, the legal way to make a right turn and then go into the left lane is as follows: When a driver makes a right hand turn, the driver should be in the lane which is closest to the right as the driver can get. If the driver wants to move into the left hand lane, he/she can only do so from the right hand lane, turning their left turn signal on, and when the lane to the left is clear, the driver can then safely move into the left lane. Although you may have had the right of way when you turned right, you were expected to enter the right lane as soon as you made your turn and then slowly proceed into the left lane. Making a right hand turn and going directly into the left hand lane is illegal, I agree with you that this rule is violated every day by thousands of drivers, however, it does not change the fact that it is an illegal driving move.
