New York Unsafe Lane Change Lawyer

What constitutes an unsafe lane change?

One of the most common causes of car accidents in the U.S. is unsafe lane changes. When a person changes from one marked lane to another without paying attention, or does so when they are not legally allowed to do so, they could collide with another vehicle or cause someone else to crash.

Unsafe lane changes are outlined in N.Y. VTL §1128 as follows:

  • A driver must not change lanes until they have ascertained that it is safe to do so
  • The left lane is to be used for passing or making left turns
  • Slow-moving vehicles (trucks, buses, etc.) may be required to use designated lanes
  • Markings indicating hazardous crossing must not be crossed (double-yellow lines, etc.)
