What a Washington State Unsafe Lane Change Ticket Means to You

There are several subsections for this statute that apply to different scenarios, which could result in being issued a Washington traffic ticket. However, the most common situation is an unsafe lane change. The requirements under this statute state that the car must be driven as “nearly as practicable” entirely within a single lane and cannot be moved from the lane until the driver determines it is safe.
If you make a lane change and sideswipe a car in the next lane, then the movement was not safe and you will likely receive a WA traffic ticket for unsafe lane change. Likewise, if you drift out of your lane accidently and hit another car then you were not driving as nearly as



Even if you did not cause an accident you could get a WA traffic ticket for unsafe lane change. If you make a lane change and cut off another car in the process, then the movement was not safe. If you are swerving in and out of your lane for no valid reason, then you were not driving within your lane as nearly as practicable.
These types of Washington State traffic tickets are especially difficult to contest because there are very few technical arguments to be made. All an Officer has to do is describe what happened. Unlike a speeding ticket, there is no mechanical device that a Washington traffic ticket attorney can second guess. It is simply the visual observations of an officer. The result is a he-said she-said type of situation with the Officer, which is always difficult. This is why it’s important to hire an experienced Washington State traffic ticket lawyer; because they will give you the best chance to find a reason for a dismissal.
