Can someone tell me what the origin of The Joseph Lane was?



To avoid sitting in backed up traffic when he's trying to make a right turn. I have one of these on my commute, but I always think of his dumb ass getting pulled over and how he thought it was some brilliant technique. Nice $200 lifehack to save 2 minutes, stupid.
There's constant roadworks and traffic on the road out of the city to my cottage, with a bus lane that's always empty. Every Friday, without fail, some shithead like Joe thinks he's beat the system by getting into it and speeding past all the waiting cars. 3 out of 4 times, they get flagged over by the cop car parked round the corner. Easy beer money for the pigs
