I recently spoke with a client who was ticketed after an accident for failure to maintain lane. This particular client was attempting to make a left turn at an intersection when his vehicle crossed the solid white line he was attempting to move his vehicle into the far left lane. His vehicle was struck from behind by another vehicle. The responding law-enforcement officer cited my client for failure to maintain lane.

The Georgia traffic code states that your vehicle must maintain itself with in a lane that is marked by two solid white lines or two solid yellow lines. Failing to maintain your vehicle with in these lines, may result in you being cited for failure to maintain lane.

There is often a desire to move from one left turn lane to the other because of the number of cars in a specific lane. In doing so, a driver violates the Georgia code and will be cited if this is observed or if this causes an accident.

If you have questions about the above or if you have received a traffic ticket for failure to maintain lane, contact the traffic ticket defense attorney Scott Miller in Alpharetta, Georgia for a free consultation. 770-408-1001
