California Vehicle Code 21460(a) Can be Tricky

Every driver knows that you’re never supposed to cross double yellow lines down the center of a road, but it does happen from time to time. Way back in the early 1990’s, Isuzu even created a commercial about “staying within the lines.” The lines that are painted on roads can be our friends and keep us safe, but sometimes people go outside the lines, and that’s when the trouble begins.

CVC 21460(a) states, “If double parallel solid yellow lines are in place, a person driving a vehicle shall not drive to the left of the lines, except as permitted in this section.” Further subsections of this code indicate the specific circumstances under which a driver may be allowed to cross the double line, but they’re really few and far between so if a police officer sees you crossing that line, getting a ticket for doing so is pretty much a done deal.

The Cost Of Crossing The Lines

If a police officer cites you for crossing the solid double lines on a roadway and you plead guilty to the charge, it can cost you quite a bit in the long run. First, you have the fine and all the surcharges the locality adds to it, which will run you a couple hundred dollars. You’ll also receive a point on your driver’s license, which will result in an increase in your vehicle insurance premium for at least two years. If you want to make sure that doesn’t happen, you’ll have to attend traffic school, which you’ll also have to pay for.

What Can You Do?

You have a couple of options when it comes to deciding how to handle a ticket you received for a violation of CVC 21460(a). First, you can plead guilty and deal with the backlash as described above.

If you want to dispute the ticket, you can try to do it yourself (and most likely lose, unless you know exactly what you’re doing). You also have the option of finding and hiring a “traffic ticket attorney,” who is likely to charge you an arm and a leg to contest the ticket, with no guarantee of the outcome. Or, you can have California’s most effective and efficient traffic ticket fighting legal group, Ticket Snipers, fight that ticket for you and provide you with a money back guarantee in the unlikely event that your ticket isn’t completely dismissed.
