The Department of Transportation, Pennsylvania Law Enforcement/Police, and other officials set lane change restrictions to protect drivers. Despite these clearly created restrictions on passing, unsafe drivers violate them every day causing significant accidents. These accidents often result in serious and significant injuries which, in turn, can result in wage loss, pain and suffering, medical bills, and other forms of damages. At the Law Offices of Samuel Fishman, we will take on the insurance companies and work to obtain you the maximum possible recovery for your injuries.
Under Pennsylvania Law, the legislature has enacted a law which states that:
Prohibitions against changing lanes- Official traffic-control devices may be installed prohibiting the changing of lanes on a section of roadway and drivers of vehicles shall obey the directions of every such device.
This law requires that all drivers pay attention to and obey any traffic control device which prevents the driver from passing. This can include double yellow lines and any other traffic control devices which prevents passing. When a driver violates this law, the court is empowered to find that driver negligent as a matter of law.
