California Vehicle Code 22107 outlines the law for signaling turns and stops. It explains how:
- Drivers are only allowed to turn if they have provided the correct indication to move left or right
- Drivers should only turn when they have observed the safety of oncoming vehicles or pedestrians, where no one or vehicle will be adversely affected by the turn
The following could be considered an example of a VC 22107 violation:
Sandy is driving to work. She stops at a coffee shop on the way and gets a large latte and proceeds to drink her coffee while she drives to work. Distracted by her coffee and an incoming telephone call, Sandy almost misses her exit, but is able to swerve from the far left lane to the exit just in time. Right after she exits the freeway, a police officer pulls her over and cites her for violating CVC 22107.
An dangerous turn or inaccurate signal is considered a violation of VC 22107. It can be filed as an infraction, if ticket fees are not paid when due.
