It's simple on a motorway. But, for a simple example on a surface road,
how do you know where the straight lanes go if there are 3 lanes after
an intersection but 2 before?
And actually, even on a motorway, what if it's 4 lanes to a split of 2
and 3? The assumption is that the second lane from the left can be used
to exit, but it's possible that only the leftmost lane is available, and
a second lane begins on the ramp right at the gore. Or perhaps there's a
short segment of 5 lanes before the split - how do you know which side
the new lane forms on?
