I don't disagree with positioning himself to the left of the carriageway, and even over the bicycle lane, to make the left hand turn, but he shouldn't be alongside.
"Shouldn't" and "must not" are two very different terms. One is a legal requirement, the other is not.
Like I said "unless QLD is very different to Victoria"....
