A: It depends on the facts of your case. You cannot drive in the left lane of traffic of I-5 if you are pulling a trailer, your vehicle combination weighs 10,000 pounds or more, you are impeding traffic or you are not passing slower traffic. The general legal requirement is to drive in the right lane of a multi-lane roadway unless there is a reason to not do that and then you have to get back in the right lane. Without seeing the ticket (Notice of Infraction) document itself, it is not possible to provide you a specific answer. You should hire an experienced traffic law attorney if you want to try and keep this ticket off of your driving and insurance records. Good Luck!
