Can a Driver Ever Cross a Double Yellow Line Without Being Ticketed

Can a Driver Ever Cross a Double Yellow Line Without Being Ticketed - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

Section 21460 of the California Vehicle Code makes it an infraction to drive to the left of a double yellow line. If a police officer observes you crossing over a double yellow line illegally and tickets you, the penalties include a fine and a point added to your DMV record if convicted.

To avoid being ticketed you should only cross a double yellow line if doing so falls under one of the several exceptions provided under the law. You can generally cross double yellow lines when: (1) making a lawful u-turn (watch out for business districts where u-turns are generally not allowed), (2) passing a vehicle if one of the double yellow lines is broken and the broken line is closest to you, (3) turning left at an intersection, (4) making a left turn into a driveway, (5) making a left turn out of a driveway, (6) making a left turn into a private road, (7) making a left turn out of a private road, (8) entering a two way left turn lane (double parallel lines on either side of the lane with the inner lines broken and the outer line solid). - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.
