How about if two people from the same lane are trying to get over to the left or right? Is it the person in front or behind since they have the cleared space first?Who has the right of way when changing lanes?
You avoid a collision at all costs. If someone does not yield to you stay away from them.Who has the right of way when changing lanes?
The other people in the other lanes always have the right of way first - the person that wants to make the lane change has to wait for the lane to be clear by checking over the shoulder and mirrors. I'm not sure if there is a specific law, but usually both lanes have to yield to each other. When changing lanes in the car I give the farthest ahead the right of way (ideally it would be a person from the extreme left lane) because they're going faster (making it more difficult to steer the vehicle), but they have to make sure they don't cut off anyone of the slower lanes. Ideally cars of all lanes have to yeild to each other, waiting for the lane to be clear before switching over. If two drivers of two cars switch over to the same lane at once without looking and create an accident, then they are both at fault.
If you're on the road and you and another person are changing lanes, and you not sure if you have the right of way or not, the best thing to do is to stay in your lane and let the other person go first to prevent an accident. Then you may go.
neither you both have to make sure the lane is clear before changing. it really is unfair for you to think that everyone has to look out for you.
no one has a reserved right away. Just make sure that lane is clear to you. if the other car has already made the first move, then that car reserves the right to change (unless you want to move as well and get in an accident)
You would both be at fault. It is each driver's responsibility to ensure that the area is clear before changing lanes.
Any driver changing lanes is responsible for doing so safely. That's what the law says.
First example - both would be at fault.....
Second example - the driver behind should watch the driver ahead so he doesn't ';rear-end'; that driver ahead. Any driver who hits a vehicle from the behind is usually at fault.
NEITHER OF YOU BUT YOU CAN ALWAYS......
