Re: Changing Lanes in an Intersection in CA
Let me start by saying I'm not all that familiar with CA law, but I remember seeing something in the WA laws about it -- but I cannot find it now. The only CA reference I can find is from the Commercial Driver's Handbook. It states:
I cannot find a statute which actually makes it unlawful, however. Maybe someone else, who knows CA law better, will be able to.
When driving through an intersection:
Check traffic thoroughly in all directions.
Decelerate and yield to any pedestrians and traffic in the intersection.
Do not change lanes or shift gears while proceeding through the intersection.
Keep your hands on the wheel.
Where am I going? And why am I in this handbasket?
