Weaving from one lane to another in and out of traffic can be interpreted as reckless and dangerous driving. The legal consequences of a reckless driving, dangerous driving ticket can be significant.
The common reasons for changing lanes while driving on a city or state street or highway is that the lane you are driving in is coming to an end.
Other common reasons to a change lanes are that you are planning to turn in an upcoming intersection which requires you to be in another lane to complete the legal turn.
If you are approaching hazards in or on the road, like holes in the roadway or obstacles left on the roadway, it may be necessary for you to change lanes, but do so safely.
If you are traveling on the road and the vehicle in front of you is driving slower than the speed limit you are permitted to pass that vehicle safely as long as the lines marking the lanes are broken white lines.
