Case 3: Traffic Violation-Move over law PDF Print E-mail
My client was driving his F-250 to work early in the morning as he approached a four-way intersection. As he turned right and started to accelerate, he saw a police officer with his lights on who had pulled over another driver. It was a two-lane road with a solid center yellow line on both sides. It was also slightly uphill making visibility difficult. My client got over as much as he could in the right lane as he passed the officer. The officer didn’t like this and pulled my client over claiming he violated the move over law.

At trial, I pointed out to the officer the dangers that my client could have faced if he would have moved over into the left hand lane. I further examined the other possible violations that my client could have been committing if he had moved all the way over into the left hand lane. Jury wasn’t impressed with the officer and state’s argument and found my client not guilty in less than ten minutes.
