What Is Failure to Maintain a Lane, & Why Is It Dangerous?
Failure to maintain a lane could lead to a serious accident. As a rule, drivers should stay within the lane lines at all times, unless purposefully making a lane change. When changing lanes, drivers should always turn their signal on, check their blind spots, and proceed only when it is safe to do so. Distracted driving, as well as drunk or drowsy driving, are common causes of failure to maintain a lane.
Failure to maintain a lane involves:
- Weaving in your lane
- Drifting across lanes of traffic
- Straddling a dividing line
- Making erratic or unsafe lane changes
Since commercial trucks are so large, failure to stay within the lane lines could have devastating consequences. Truck drivers could easily hit other cars or run motorists off the road. If a truck driver drifts out of a lane or makes a sudden lane change without using a turn signal, he or she may be held liable for any injuries that result.
