Fair enough - The OP would need to clarify.Where the pin is and given the initial description of the incident in his first post, I'd not characturize it as 2' (not even wider than the line).
I respect your opinion, but disagree. The heading "Article 1. Driving on the Right Side" includes a number of things that aren't related to driving on the "right" side of the road - read all the sections (21650-21664) and you'll see what I mean, but as an example, check out 21658:I'd argue the on ramp is not a divided off section of the same highway. This statute is designed (based on the heading) to apply to barriers dividing the highway not gores and other things at intersecting roadways.
Whenever any roadway has been divided into two or more clearly marked lanes for traffic in one direction, the following rules apply:
(a) A vehicle shall be driven as nearly as practical entirely within a single lane and shall not be moved from the lane until such movement can be made with reasonable safety.
(b) Official signs may be erected directing slow-moving traffic to use a designated lane or allocating specified lanes to traffic moving in the same direction, and drivers of vehicles shall obey the directions of the traffic device.
The point I'm making is that 21658 falls under "Article 1. Driving on the Right Side" and speaks to something different.
