Improper Passing

Did you recently receive a traffic ticket for a moving violation? If this violation involved improper passing, we can help you. Our law firm can provide you with a traffic violation attorney who can work with you to get this ticket removed from your record.

Don’t Let an Improper Passing Ticket Get Your License Revoked

Improper passing, in and of itself, is a minor violation that usually ends up with the offender being issued a routine traffic ticket. However, as with other seemingly minor offenses of this kind, too many of them can lead you into serious financial and legal difficulties.

These can include hefty fines, a hike in your insurance premiums, and ultimately the suspension or revocation of your driver’s license due to accumulating too many points. Your best bet to avoid these problems is to hire a traffic violation lawyer from our firm.

Under What Conditions Can You Be Cited for Improper Passing?

There are a number of conditions under which you could receive a traffic ticket for improper passing. These can include the following:

  • Improperly passing to the right of another vehicle. The only exception is if right passing is expressly allowed on that particular road.
  • You can be cited if you do not stay safely to the left until you have safely overtaken the other vehicle.
  • You can be cited if you do not pass in a timely manner or pull in once a safe distance has been reached.
  • You can be cited if, while another car is passing you, you speed up or refuse to give way to the other vehicle.
  • Under no circumstances are you ever permitted to pass other vehicles while in a specified “No Passing” zone.

What Are the Possible Penalties for Improper Passing?

There are a number of penalties that you can incur if convicted of improper passing. These can include the following:

  • Being found guilty of improper passing on the left will add three points to your record.
  • Being found guilty of improper passing on the right will add three points.
  • Being found guilty of improper passing where the vehicle you overtake does not maintain its speed will add three points.
  • Being found guilty of improper passing on a hill will add four points.
  • Being found guilty of improper passing at a railroad intersection or railroad crossing will add three points.
  • Being found guilty of improper passing at a tunnel or bridge will add three points.
  • Being found guilty of improper passing at a specified “No Passing” zone will add three points.

What Should You Do When You Are Pulled Over?

When the police pull you over, be on your best behavior. Be polite, friendly, and make sure to remain calm. Do not argue, shout, point, or show irritation or impatience. Turn off your ignition but do not get out of the car.

Answer all of the questions that the police officer asks. However, you should absolutely not volunteer any kind of information that you are not specifically asked for since this could be used against you during your appearance in traffic court.

How Can a Traffic Violation Attorney Help You?

If you are summoned to traffic court to defend yourself, you need to bring a knowledgeable and experienced traffic violation attorney with you. Your attorney will work to show all of the evidence in your favor while doing their best to discredit any evidence that seems to count against you.

The sooner you contact us, the sooner we will be able to go to work for you. Get in touch with us today to learn more about what an experienced and qualified traffic violation attorney can do to get your improper passing ticket revoked.
