Liability In Head-On Collisions
Drivers that cross double yellow lines are likely to be found at fault in the event of an accident. According to California Vehicle Code 21460, “If double parallel solid yellow lines are in place, a person driving a vehicle shall not drive to the left of the lines, except as permitted in this section.” The family of any person that died in a head-on collision may have legal recourse through a wrongful death claim.
