Remember: the shoulder on residential roads without sidewalks is often where pedestrians must walk.
Don't use it to overtake, don't use it as a turn lane at traffic lights, and remember to watch there, especially at night.
@rachel ... I forgot people do this
Only emergency services do that here, and even then it's rare. Our shoulders have broken down cars quite often.
We don't have shoulders at intersections usually, it becomes a turn lane, except in the city where there's almost always a sidewalk.
@rachel Sucks for people who have to walk out in the country tho, but, the shoulder is used as a break-down lane first and foremost and it's very dangerous to break down at an intersection.
