Re: Double/Double Yellow Lines - CVC 21651(A)
So, if you crossed over the two double yellow lines (referred to as a double double", then yes... 21651(a) IS applicable.
(a) Whenever a highway has been divided into two or more roadways by means of intermittent barriers or by means of a dividing section of not less than two feet in width, either unpaved or delineated by curbs, double-parallel lines, or other markings on the roadway, it is unlawful to do either of the following:
(1) To drive any vehicle over, upon, or across the dividing section.
(2) To make any left, semicircular, or U-turn with the vehicle on the divided highway, except through an opening in the barrier designated and intended by public authorities for the use of vehicles or through a plainly marked opening in the dividing section.
A "No U-turn" sign need not be posted.
That talks about a SINGLE- double yellow line... NOT a Double double yellow line.
And by the way, it is illegal to make a U-Turn over ANY yellow line(s) in a business district... Regardless of whether the lines are single yellow lines or double yellow lines. So even if you would have made your u-turn before you got to the double double line area, you probably would have been cited for VC 22102
I am right 97% of the time... Who cares about the other 4%!
