Failure to Yield Right of Way

Failure to yield right of way is a traffic violation that applies to a few different situations on the roads of New York. If you have been cited for this charge but wish to fight the ticket in court, contact David Galison today. You will want to work with an experienced attorney who knows the workings of traffic court and can guide you through the process.

There are many different scenarios on the roadway in which a driver is required to yield the right of way. A couple examples are as follows -

  • turning left across oncoming traffic, driver does not wait for traffic to pass
  • driver proceeds through a crosswalk where pedestrians are present and have the legal right of way

If you are caught in the act violating the right of way laws in either of those two examples, you can be charged with failure to yield right of way. This charge will add three points to your New York driving record if you are convicted. Also, you will have to pay a fine that depends on the circumstances and your previous driving record.
