Good to know!
Thank you so much for this instruction on how to turn across a bike lane! After reading the article I checked my state's drivers manual and there is nary a word about moving into bike lanes. It seems an obvious safety improvement to do what they say, it's just that I thought bike lanes were off limit for cars, almost no matter what. I'm going to be visiting SF for the RSA conference and this article may well have saved poor cyclist's life!
