Fight Your Marked Lanes Violations, O.R.C. 4511.33 (by Dayton DUI)

Double-yellow line

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has developed a guide for detecting drunk drivers.  In that guide, NHTSA identifies 24 “clues” that potentially impaired drivers exhibit.  Many of those “clues” relate to the driver’s ability to maintain proper lane position.  Your attorney should aggressively defend your driving and point out to a judge or jury other possible causes of weaving such as: texting, eating, telephone calls, conversations with other passengers, changing the radio station, stretching, or fatigue may account for the driving.

Your DUI defense lawyer should also be prepared to argue that your weaving may not violate Ohio law.  Ohio Revised Code 4511.33 is often cited as the reason for initiating a traffic stop.  What does it say?

4511.33 Driving in marked lanes.

(A) Whenever any roadway has been divided into two or more clearly marked lanes for traffic, or wherever within municipal corporations traffic is lawfully moving in two or more substantially continuous lines in the same direction, the following rules apply:

(1) A vehicle or trackless trolley shall be driven, as nearly as is practicable, entirely within a single lane or line of traffic and shall not be moved from such lane or line until the driver has first ascertained that such movement can be made with safety.

(2) Upon a roadway which is divided into three lanes and provides for two-way movement of traffic, a vehicle or trackless trolley shall not be driven in the center lane except when overtaking and passing another vehicle or trackless trolley where the roadway is clearly visible and such center lane is clear of traffic within a safe distance, or when preparing for a left turn, or where such center lane is at the time allocated exclusively to traffic moving in the direction the vehicle or trackless trolley is proceeding and is posted with signs to give notice of such allocation.

(3) Official signs may be erected directing specified traffic to use a designated lane or designating those lanes to be used by traffic moving in a particular direction regardless of the center of the roadway, or restricting the use of a particular lane to only buses during certain hours or during all hours, and drivers of vehicles and trackless trolleys shall obey the directions of such signs.

(4) Official traffic control devices may be installed prohibiting the changing of lanes on sections of roadway and drivers of vehicles shall obey the directions of every such device.

(B) Except as otherwise provided in this division, whoever violates this section is guilty of a minor misdemeanor. If, within one year of the offense, the offender previously has been convicted of or pleaded guilty to one predicate motor vehicle or traffic offense, whoever violates this section is guilty of a misdemeanor of the fourth degree. If, within one year of the offense, the offender previously has been convicted of two or more predicate motor vehicle or traffic offenses, whoever violates this section is guilty of a misdemeanor of the third degree.

As you can see, Ohio’s “marked lane” law is forgiving and gives a driver a great deal of latitude in leaving a lane of travel.  It states that the car “shall be driven, as nearly as is practicable, entirely within a single lane or line of traffic and shall not be moved from such lane or line until the driver has first ascertained that such movement can be made with safety.”  It is vital that when an officer presents a video tape with de minimus weaving you can make an argument that the law was not violated.
