It sure happens with great regularity here in CA. (Doing what OP says; not getting a ticket for it, AFAIK.)
Related question: Many streets have bike lanes. They are narrower than regular lanes, and separated from the car lane with a solid white line. Car drivers aren’t supposed to cross the white line into the bike lane.
Except near intersections. I think. As one approaches an intersection, that solid white line turns into a dashed line at most (but not all) intersections. What does that mean? I think it means that a right-turning car should pull into that bike lane, in order to “follow the curb” when making the right turn.
I asked a cop that once. He only said, somewhat cryptically: “A bicycle lane ceases to be a bicycle lane when no bicycle is present there.”
And when the solid white line, separating the bike lane, remains solid when approaching the intersection? Then cars are supposed to stay in the car lane when they make a right turn? (i.e., treat the solid white line as if it is the curb when “following the curb” around the right turn)?
