Unsafe Lane Changes in Texas
Need Help Getting Out of a Traffic Ticket? Obtain Experienced Legal Assistance with Our Harris County Lawyer
If you received a ticket for an unsafe lane change, you may want to fight it if you believe you made a safe switch in lanes. Most illegal lane change violations are based on the subjective interpretation of a police officer.
Law enforcement officers may issue unsafe lane change tickets when drivers:
- Do not use blinkers
- Cross multiple lanes of traffic
- Do not leave room for other vehicles to maneuver around them
With more than five decades of collective experience, the office of Paul Kubosh, Attorney at Law is committed to helping you to either get your citation dismissed or the penalties reduced significantly. Our Harris County traffic ticket lawyers have handled more than 200,000 cases and 187,000 court dates in the Houston area, which means we understand what it takes to get the most favorable outcome possible.
Penalties for Illegal Lane Changes
In Texas, an unsafe lane change violation can result in a fine of up to $200. In addition, it results in a two-point mark on your driving record and may increase insurance premiums.
Incurring four or more violations in one year runs the risk of suspension of your driver’s license. Remember, driving record offenses and violations remain on record for no more than five years.
