Failure to Yield

In Georgia, there are certain times when a driver has to yield the right of way to another vehicle or even a pedestrian. For example in Georgia, you have to yield the right of way to a pedestrian in a crosswalk. In other words, you cannot just drive through the crosswalk when a pedestrian is properly occupying that space to cross the road. You must wait for the pedestrian to pass, i.e., yield the right of way, before you can travel through the road.

Sometimes we see these tickets issued in accident cases as well. Suppose a car is traveling towards you in an adjacent lane and you are attempting to make a left turn at an intersection. If you have a flashing yellow light (which indicates that you must be cautious of traffic before making your move) and you do not wait for the oncoming vehicle to pass you and instead make a premature move, you could end up colliding with the oncoming vehicle. If this happens, it is highly likely that you will be charged with failure to yield to oncoming traffic.

  1. Failure to Yield to Oncoming Traffic (Georgia Code Section 40-6-41)
  2. Failure to Yield at Intersections (Georgia Code section 40-6-70)
  3. Failure to Yield when Turning Left (Georgia Code section 40-6-71)
  4. Failure to Yield when Entering or Crossing Roadway (Georgia Code section 40-6-73)
  5. Failure to Yield to Bicycle (Georgia Code section 40-6-55)
  6. Failure to Yield to Construction Vehicle (Georgia Code section 40-6-75)
  7. Failure to Yield to Funeral Procession (Georgia Code section 40-6-76)
  8. Failure to Yield to Emergency Vehicle (Georgia Code section 40-6-74)

Having a skilled and experienced Georgia failure to yield attorney on your case will help you achieve a better result.

  • We help keep your driving record clean. We can speak to the prosecutor about your case in an effort to negotiate your charge to a reduced or non-reporting violation. The goal is to keep your violation off of your record. In other instances, we may be able to identify defenses, mitigating circumstances or technical/procedural mistakes made by the citing officer, which could result in a dismissal of your charge.
  • We can save you money. If you simply pay your failure to yield ticket and it goes on your record, your insurance company will use it against you by increasing your insurance premiums. Most likely, they will increase your premiums by thousands over dollars for several years. By keeping the ticket off your record, we'll save you more money in the long run. Additionally, if your failure to yield case involved an accident and you plead guilty, it is possible that the driver of the other vehicle can sue you civilly for injury damages and use your guilty plea against you. Protect yourself and consult with an experienced Georgia failure to yield attorney today.
  • We can save you time: Whenever it is possible, we handle your case without you having to appear in court to face the prosecutor and judge. However, depending on the court and the facts of your case, your appearance may necessary or beneficial; in that event, we can still save you time because due to procedural rules, courts typically hear attorney represented cases before hearing non-represented cases, thereby drastically decreasing the amount of time you spend in court.
  • We offer clear flat fee representation so you are never surprised by the legal fees we charge.
  • We are easy to get in touch with and pride ourselves on promptly returning phone calls and emails.

We have handled thousands of tickets all over Georgia and have a strong record of success since 2008. We welcome you to call us today at (678) 895-6039 to discuss your failure to yield case.
