New York Unsafe Lane Change Lawyer
In New York, many factors can lead to a frustrating driving experience — the overabundance of vehicles on the road, the proliferation of roadside signs, complex traffic signals, and obscured or confusing lane markings. Essentially, it is not always easy to understand what your designated lane is. For example, many drivers do not realize that the left lane is to be used for passing or making left turns (N.Y. VTL §1128).
Often police officers which arrive at the seen of an accident assume that one or more drivers changed lanes illegally, without witnessing the violation first hand.
