comment What does it mean to be in the fast lane in California?
You are mis-reading this section of the code. This is referring to the fact that on a two-lane road you must drive on the right-hand side of the road. It explicitly states that it does not apply "(d) Upon a roadway restricted to one-way traffic.", which is normally going to be the case for highways which are one-way on either side of some form of divider. California law does NOT generally require you to drive in the right-hand most lane as in some other countries, and in fact the driving handbook recommends against driving in the far right-hand lane on multi-lane highways in many cases.

comment Collecting luggage and checking them in again?
Automated Passport Control kiosks can only be used by people from ESTA countries that have entered the US at least once since 2008. As this is Angela's first time to the US, that won't be the case. The Mobile Passport App is not available for ESTA.

comment Car rental insurance in US with Canadian hired car
Do you have an American Express card? If so, check if you can get their "Premium" rental car insurance. $16-25/rental (NOT per day!). You probably won't be able to get it mid-rental, but at your next 30 day period.

comment Travelling after E3 Visa
The processing time is NOT a factor! Once you have received confirmation that the application to change status has been received then you can legally remain in the country. If it is approved, then you're good. If it is rejected, then you've still had 2.5 months (or more) of legal status!

comment Is there a way to find an aircraft's statistics?
Find yourself a nice brick wall and repeatedly bang your head against it. It'll be more fun and far more productive than attempting to prove that an aircraft had a pre-existing problem causing your delay.

comment Hitchhike from Montreal to San Francisco
I know this isn't what you're asking, but you can fly from Montreal to SF anytime from next Thursday for C$278 (and probably even less if you make your way to the US and fly from there). Is 10 days of travel really worth more than C$278?

comment 70 minutes Layover at LAX
Definitely no security, no walking outside (T4-T8 are all connected airside now!). United do NOT use TBIT other than for a very small number of early-morning international arrivals before their own immigration hall in T7 opens. The return MEL-LAX IS one of the flights that uses TBIT 6 days a week, but not on the outbound.

comment Are there countries where people of a particular religion are refused entry?
Although it is not currently stated on their website, the official Saudi Government Tourism website has previously explicitely stated that visas would not be issues to "Jewish People" - web.archive.org/web/20030925131342/http:/…
