Traffic Defense Attorney in Carteret County
Failure to Maintain Lane Control
Failure to maintain single lane (FTMSL) or failure to maintain lane control is a traffic violation that many unknowingly commit. A law enforcement officer may pull over a motorist if their vehicle's tires cross the edge line of a lane or cross a lane divider. This is extremely easy to do on any road, not to mention one that is not well lit or a road with faded paint. Consequently, failure to maintain lane control has become a commonly ticketed traffic offense.
Whether you crossed the line of a single lane division by mistake or to quickly bypass a vehicle moving slower than the speed limit, a police officer can (and probably will) pull you over and sentence you with a traffic offense ticket. In such cases, there is no allowance for explanation and you are left with a ticket you may feel you don't deserve.
