CVC 21651 Driving On Right Side

Stay within the lines. Which lines?

Why, the ones which keep you on the right side of the road, of course. California Vehicle Code 21651 maintains:

(a) Whenever a highway has been divided into two or more roadways by means of intermittent barriers or by means of a dividing section of not less than two feet in width, either unpaved or delineated by curbs, double-parallel lines, or other markings on the roadway, it is unlawful to do either of the following:

(1)To drive any vehicle over, upon, or across the dividing section.

(2) To make any left, semicircular, or U-turn with the vehicle on the divided highway, except through an opening in the barrier designated and intended by public authorities for the use of vehicles or through a plainly marked opening in the dividing section.

(b) It is unlawful to drive any vehicle upon a highway, except to the right of an intermittent barrier or a dividing section which separates two or more opposing lanes of traffic.

The High Price of Violating the Line Barrier

While driving a vehicle, crossing the dividing lines of a highway can be extremely dangerous for both the driver doing so and any oncoming traffic. Whether a driver crosses the line for just a few seconds or drives down the wrong side of a divided highway, accidents can happen in the blink of an eye.

That’s why a violation of this code can carry a pretty hefty fine, either one or two points on your driver’s license depending on the actual infraction, and if the violation results in the injury or death of a person, it can call for a sentence of imprisonment as well.
