Lane Violations Can Be Confusing
It can leave a driver wondering what they have done incorrectly. CVC 21658 and its sister sections regulate “straddling” lanes and safe lane changes. While that might sound pretty cut and dried on the surface, the interpretation of this code is actually quite subjective and can be successfully challenged with the proper techniques.
Thousands of drivers a year receive traffic citations under California Vehicle Code 21658 and most of them feel confused.
The stakes are high with heavy fines, along with the state and local assessments, which can total hundreds of dollars
Not only that, but it adds points to your drivers’ licenses unless you pay more money and attend traffic school (if eligible).
If the option of traffic school is declined, the violation is reported to the drivers’ insurance companies, which results in increased insurance premiums for usually three years or even more!
If you’ve received a ticket under this code, you may not even know what you did wrong
Maybe you were changing lanes at the appropriate rate of speed and not straddling the line or simply merging lanes legally.
You may have also had the perception that no surrounding traffic was in the general area while you were attempting to change lanes. Yet, the citing officer who viewed the scene from a different vantage point saw things differently and decided to write a citation.
