Re: Unsafe Lane Change in California
There is a big difference between slowing down to allow another vehicle in front of you... And slowing down abruptly to avoid hitting someone who snuck in, in front of you... This will all depend on the officer's observations and how he will testify in court.
That is VERY odd... Assuming you were cited for VC 22107, then it should be eligible for a TBD, and no, your driving record should not affect your eligibility either.
Is that the code section you were cited for? If not, please post the section number... Also, were you cited for something else IN ADDITION to the unsafe lane change? If so what is it?
You might end up having to call the court to ask them why you're ineligible.
I am right 97% of the time... Who cares about the other 4%!
