Do you need a lawyer to fight a ticket for an unsafe lane change in Queens or NY? Look no more. The attorneys at My Tickets NYC are very talented at defending tickets issued for an unsafe lane change VTL S 1128a.  Tickets for an unsafe lane change occur more often than most think. An officer may cite you for changing lanes without using your signal. Or they may ticket you for not staying in your lane/ driving in two lanes on a multi-lane highway. If the officer feels that you are driving in two lanes for too long, they may ticket you. If there is a turn lane and an officer sees you driving in it without making a turn, they can ticket you under the unsafe lane change law. If you are driving in a lane that has official markers indicating that it would be unsafe to cross the markers and drive in the lane, a law enforcement official may ticket you. No matter the reason you received an unsafe lane change ticket our lawyers can help.

Drivers are ticketed if they do not move over for emergency or safety vehicles. Additionally, drivers are required to take all precautions to avoid and drive safely around any construction, emergency or safety vehicles.
